I just started taking this course and I must say that I am deeply disappointed by the instructors. Their accent is terrible, pronunciation is far from good, which makes is hard to understand what they are reading, because, they also read the lesson from a text! I am used to excellency with EDX, but this is mediocre! Some examples of wrong pronunciation: "our" is "or"; "item" is "eetem"; "monitor" is "monitchor" and many others.
