It really improved my skills !

It's a great course, It has learning curve hard at the beginning but I improved my english skills integrally.

Thanks to some given tasks of following TED lectures, I heard different opinions from all aspects and improved my note-taking skills.

listening skills in 3 reviews

This course is good to improve the listening skills, but the note taking is really boring, because it is focused in only one method, the Conell Note, This disregards individual differences, and I don´t think this method is the best for me.
