The course presents very interesting subject matter, and the professor and his assistants do this in a very enthusiastic, energetic and interesting manner.

I enjoyed the course so much, I've learnt a lot more than I've expected. If I would be younger, I might have thought to make degree in Linguistic. Thank you for your effort.

Highly recommended! This was my first Coursera course and I will never forget it. I took it before taking Linguistics at UMass. It helped me immensely and really got me interested in the subject. Now I am taking a TESOL certification course. To say this course opened doors for me is an understatement.

This is the most interesting MOOC I've ever taken!

I highly recommend everyone to try it
