    "a great and well written course"

    - Fatima Zahra Najam, London

    I've recently started reading over the course and I like the fact that there are loads of examples, exercises and activities. I have emailed my tutor quite a few times and have recieved replies in good time so that's not a problem.

    However you could improve by giving page numbers- I find it quite hard to sometimes find my pages so I had to write in my own numbers. Also, although you do give examples, sometimes towards the end of the examples, some of the stages are left out so I find it quite difficult to try and work out how one stage leads to the last stage- it would be much easier for me if all the stages of an example were written in and not skipped.

    Apart from that, I’ve got no other problems with it and generally think it’s a great and well written course.
