Thank you for teaching me how to write basic essays. This has been one of my most important goals for years. I've tried several other ways of learning but your method worked for me. Thank you so much.

I always loved writing. What I didn't know, however, was that writing had some scientific structures that could make it very interesting. Take this course and know why. I took and was very successful.

A great course if you have an intermediate English knowledge, and the only thing I can say is to thank you, however, the peer qualifications section must be controlled, so we can have better feedback, and you make sure everyone is reviewing the best way, other course colleagues, not only typing just a word and comment if it is wrong a son on.

The teacher is excellent. She is calm, patient and a very clear accent. She explains very well. I learnt a lot through this course. Would have liked it better if the course was longer and we could have written a description and other kinds of essays too. Also my classmates were helpful in providing me with helpful and encouraging feedback.

I love it. I learned a lot. ALthough I wasn't able to submit the exams and I needed to unenroll the course for it to remove it to my progress. So it's not in my completed courses. Loved it so much. It made me improve and my argumentative essay is much better. Thank you! I'm auditing the other courses from this specialization too!

This course is really useful especially for the undergraduate students of non-native speakers of English. The students can understand the basics of academic writing and writing various types of essays. It is a great learning opportunity for me to get access to this series of courses on academic English from UCI through Coursera.

It is a wonderful course. I can't believe that it is possible to find a such qualified course for free! The organization, content, activities, practice and tasks were perfect. Neither in my face to face english classes I have learned how to build a so effective essay. Thanks, Coursera. Thanks, University of California - Irvine!

The course is a well-designed one, in which I can get differet types of essays writing practiced. Before each writing task, guidelines are given to help the students better understand the requirements. It is also very beneficial to read other learners' essays, as there will always be some new ideas shared and discussed.

The course really helped me in writing by own essays. I was not known before like there will be thesis statement, supporting statements and their details with examples in any report writing, after taking this course it made my job very simple to understand topic, brainstorm the ideas and write the thesis effectively.

The second part of the specialization, getting started with essay writing, is extremely useful. It has lots and lots of essential things to learn and practice in writing. I strongly recommend completing this course since it shapes the way you create fully developed and strong message, that your essay should contain.

Con este curso he adquirdo habilidades para escribir mis ensayos en inglés, aunque tengo experiencia escribiendo en español, el curso Getting Started with Essay me ha dado la oportunidad de sentirme como si estuviera aprendiendo a escribir mis primeros artículo, pero ahora en otra lengua. Es un excelente curso.

It is incredibly great start for those who seek mastery in writing. I couldn't write even a short paraghraph about something. This course has enabled me to write even 500 words long essay about any topic that i come across. I am going to take the subsequent course in this specialization. Thank you COURSERA.

No-nonsense course that teaches you the nuts and bolts of academic essay writing. I've looked at a bunch of writing courses both here at Coursera and other sites. This is one of the best I have found. No words are wasted. No lengthy boring lecture. Just the stuff you need to know. Don't miss it!

Very good. I missed some way to communicate the others their mistakes. Such as sending a pdf or word, coloured and maybe with the mistakes underlined. I am just thinking of what I would like to receive from others. I think that it could make the practice even more effective.

Thank you for the course!

An excellent course. Easy to understand, learn and practice. The video lectures of the trainer Tamy Chapman were the best part in it. Thank you Tamy. This course has given me enough knowledge and skill to write all types of essays. I know, practice will make me more perfect; I'll do that.

In the modern world today, English becoming an essential language. If you can speak English, everybody can understand what you are talking about, but if you can transform what you are thinking into writing, you become a master. Writing essay is one of the major step bring you to this target.

I like this course because it helps me with my writing essay.

The system shows you what the different types of writing an essay are.

We only made three types of paper: compare/contrast, cause/effect, and argument.

It is a great course to start if you struggle with writing an essay.

Course is very nice, but i want give one suggestion regarding peer review assignment. Most of the peer write essay in different topic than assigned, and there is no criteria for subject matter of essay. Furthermore, i feel that many peers seems not serious about evaluation.

I learned about organizing essay paragraphs, essay styles, and best practices to follow. Content-wise, it's a good course. One suggestion is that they should include an AI-based essay rater. The essay rater will estimate the score of an essay and give useful suggestions.

An excellent choice for those who would like to learn the principle foundations of essay writing. The Peer Review process is open to abuse, but don't let it prevent you from learning and being who you are, education is about growing as a person, so grow, grow, grow!
