Very advisable.

Excellent introduction to the main theory of language acquisition, good learning practices, and a very important thing: the theme about avoiding teacher burn out, which normally is underestimated.

The course material is excellent. I never thought that teaching language had a scientific approach. The idea's discussed are truly revolutionary. The concepts are explained with good examples.
