A very informative and thorough course. the materials were more engaged toward an English classroom, but it would be relatively simple to apply a number of the activities in my area of History.

I really liked this course. Information was useful and activities were very practical. Information was detailed but not so heavy that someone new to English teaching couldn’t understand
