by Maram Bén-rhouma partially completed this course, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
Taking this course among others has helped me a lot with vocabulary, language and the assignments helped me improve a lot, like Eleanor Roosevelt:"Do one thing everyday that scares you"
