This is a very useful course as I begin my studies to prepare to teach English abroad. ASU is a recognized university and the price is very reasonable. I look forward to the next course in the series.

The only problem is that if no one has kept up with your pace, you are not able to be autonomous in the completion of your studies. This feature should be waivered if no one is available.

As a Foundations Course it is excellent, allowing giving a good introduction that is not difficult, allowing you to decide whether you want to continue with the rest of the certification.

Love the pace of the course. The short videos. The summary.

The essential question is the best part of the course triggering the need for getting deeper into analyzing what I am learning.
