speak english in 7 reviews

This course also helped me to be more confident to speak English with other person, in a meeting or on the phone.

Only one advice for a future improvement of course - please add more examples of speeches and more phrases into videos... Salam aalaikom ,iam very happy because i study for you, the lange englishe it's embortante for me .you can help me speak english brofessionally, ihave lot of problems and ilearn every day this lang ,but it's defecoult.

I strongly believe that if a person can understand those videos, I'm pretty sure that he knows that 5-years-old-extremly-basic-stuff).As much I like this concept of coursera, "speak english professionally" or even "speak english" is really a big statement for that course.

Thanks This is an amazing course that improves our abilities to speak English in different situations.

Stunning course and the most usfel course for speaking English confidentially 5 ,m,m good jobjob The professors are great and the idea of the curse too, they help you with the starting chat and through the personal introduction but i would like it to go a little bit further because professional discussions are more than basic phrases In my opinion this course does not teach you to 'speak English professionally', but it teaches you to 'learn how to speak English'.

This is really meant for people that are learning to speak English and don't know how to pronounce words or how to respond to people in a really easy way.

I'm sure I will be more confident when I speak English!
