Hello guys, I'm so sorry! I should have written this at the end of the assessment of skills acquired in the course, but unfortunately, when trying to correct the text, I lost the information.

I highlight five aspects of the skills acquired in this excellent course, I increased my vocabulary and improved my writing, reading, and Interpretation of data info in the field sciences, especially considering areas of scientific interest such as climate change that should compromise the future of humanity and the fragile planet we live on.

I was also developing more appropriate and consistent summaries. I had to Improve communication skills between colleagues, through feedbacks.

Unfortunately, for several reasons, I'm dropped out in 3 higher education courses started at one of the best Brazilian Universities, UnB DF, Forest Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Computer Science.

I decided to follow the Programming area, technical support in the areas of Hardware, Networks, and Sofware, and I intend to return to the job market.

And finally, congratulations on all team of the Coursera. Regards!

Great for those who have been learning the language for some time. You will find new terminology from science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The materials are clear, and due to the fact that these are online courses, you can watch videos with the material when it's convenient for you

All steps including videos and practice readings were useful. I learned the impact of climate change and how human could contribute in reducing the release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. I learned great on nanotechnology and how scientists are involved in testing new materials to increase the renewable energy system. And how new discoveries will change the human life across the world. Thank you!

This course is really interesting! I've learnt a lot, even that I work in the field of Earth Sciences. I think every level of advancement will find something satisfying here. Teachers are talking slowly but I think this is important, especially when somebody doesn't have elaborated language skills; if someone has, always have option to speed up the video. Everything is explained clearly (for me, some things could be not so simplified) and for people that don't have any background of STEM. I recommend this course a lot.

English for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics is a great online course I have studied. It's amazing to learn more about the use of english language, the proper way of delivering ones speech or article. This course encourages learners to deeply understand the importance of science which is focused on renewable resources that could help eliminate the harmful gases causing our planet's temperature high. I am looking forward to access some free online courses for personal development and insight. Thank you.

I really love all about the whole course itself. It widens my ideas about Climate Change and Global Warming and its consequences. It strengthens my knowledge on some of the English grammar usage and vocabularies. With all the opportunities given, I am so thankful -- to the University of Pennsylvania, for conceptualizing this course; to the Government of the United States of America, for sponsoring my study; and to the Philippines' Department of Energy for vouching my participation in this course. Thank you very much!

The course improved and enhanced my logical thinking, communication skills (written and oral) and my inter/intra personality skills. The course also reminded me on the proper usage of modal verbs, comparative adjectives, intensifiers, and the cause-and-effect language. More so on the English comprehension particularly the previewing text, scanning and reading details of the materials and summarizing main points or ideas. In sum, the course is totally a taxing but enjoyable learning experience.

The Course is really awesome. It doesn't only makes us more skilled in English Language but this course is much more important for understanding the terrible things we have done our environment and what could be the future outcomes of this. Besides, we could also learn about new technologies specifically "Nanotechnology" which has the potential to do wonders for the mankind and you will definitely become happy learn about these things during the course.

Fue muy gratificante y reflexivo este curso, para tomar conciencia de que nuestro planeta nos necesita, y tenemos que usar los recursos naturales de manera responsable, porque los que primero sentimos las consecuencias del cambio climático, somos nosotros mismos. Gracias al generoso pueblo norteamericano,que a través de sus autoridades, nos brindan la oportunidad de tomar estos cursos para desarrollarnos como mejores personas.

It was a very interesting and useful course for me. The course is well organised to come up with new information step by step. Moreover, I learned some new skills for reading text and choosing a reputable source of information or how to find original work. Also, I found out a lot about issues our planet is facing now and that people should be active to fix them all. Thanks for the course!

This course, I thought, was very well put together. The facilitators were phenomenal and were great in their delivery of all information related to this course.

Unfortunately, I did not put as much time as required for this course as I would have loved to even though I manged to complete it.

I feel this course was a good intro for me having been away from Coursera school for "many moons".

Kudos to the men and women behind Coursera. The English for STEM Course maybe a challenging experience for working moms like me in terms of being able to finish assigned tasks on or ahead of time. But at the same time it was indeed a fun and exciting experience, as I was able to enhance my English skills while increasing my knowledge and awareness in the Science field.

The modules are well crafted; they provide realistic examples of what is currently happening across the globe. As a whole, enrolling in the course, enhances my critical thinking: reflected on the assignments as well as the peer evaluation and the grammatical item to be used in submitting the required outputs. Congratulations to all the men and women behind this project!

This is a great course for both STEM students and laypersons. It is such a rich seam of information on the planet, the kind of damage we are causing on a daily basis, and on ways to save mother Earth. The course is well balanced, easy to navigate, and sure to boost the English of all enrollees, even expert users! I do recommend wholeheartedly!

As a audio learner, I much appreciated the use of technology in the class in conjunction to discussing ,readings and presentation projects. I think it's one of the most progressive lit courses I’ve ever taken between the somewhat unknown readings and way of instruction. I feel like my writing has not only improved by my mind is more open.

I learned the principles about climate change, the sources, the causes, and the effects. furthermore, I learned also the new technologies for slow down greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. This course helps me to learn more about grammar and the English language, the video lessons are so good to understanding, because they speak calmly.

This was an excellent course which made me learn too much about scientific topics that I did not know existed in the field of engineering was also surprising the way they developed the topics and vocabularies used are very good for someone who is starting to connect with the English language.

Thank you for the course and excellent work.

This course was fascinating - different types of work that helped to ease learning. Cooperation with other students on course ( anonymously) makes me be more attentive to the themes I`ve learned. Everething was explained clearly, many examples also helped a lot. I feel more confident about my knowledge. Nice and easy, i like it
