Vladi is taking this course right now, spending 1 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
Somehow I don't find it engaging.. Maybe for me is not so interesting because i already speak a bit of Spanish, but I have impression all the time that instructors are repeating a lot and over and over again.. I would give it 2-3 stars for now.

Leila dropped this course, spending 3 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be hard.
I think this class isn't suited for beginners like myself. More for the people whom are advanced for the language and can understand better for any course review.

by Carmel is taking this course right now, spending 3 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
Something is wrong with this course. It says that I haven't completed Weeks 2-5 (I'm currently on Week 5). But when I click the option there's a green check mark, meaning that I've finished it. (And I did!) How do I solve this problem?
