I'm really enjoying this course. I'm about half way through. I'm looking forrward to how the various courses in this series take me farther and farther into language learning theories and techniques.
Awesome! Now, this IS a great course on Theories of Second Language Acquisition! Definitely totally recommended; especially to those who are not familiar with or very keen on theories and histories!

The course is well prepared, however, you could include more material to read and more examples about the activities some teachers have already done applying the techniques learned.

I enjoyed all parts of this course except the angel/devil video clips. I did not find them helpful and at times felt they actually were a distraction to mastering the material.

I was never a good learner of theories...they presented these lessons well. They use many American idioms. If you can get past that, the course is a good learning experience.
par Daniela W•
I liked this course and learning about the history of all the different approaches. On a side-note, there are some typos in the quizzes as well as in the English subtitles.

I appreciated the animated approach to lecturing (theory sounds boring... I know), but it could be presented in a slightly different way; interview, panel discussion etc.
par Kevin M•
Not happy...the peer review assignments people choose to comment but not grade, honestly I think the tests are enough to show understanding of concepts and approaches.
par Andrea H G•
I really enjoyed the creative way the theories were presented. Some of the presentations seemed a bit repetitive unnecessarily, like in the Angel and Devil debates.
par John P•
Good stuff so far: hoping to get more in-depth about specific types of classroom situations (all that pesky cognitive stuff) beyond just the history of approaches
par L C•
It was well put together and enjoyable to take. The 8 theories covered are thoroughly explained. The chart infidelity helped for the 25 question exam.
par David L A•
I appreciate the video vignettes and e-enactments as part of the instruction. Many are tongue-in-cheek (on purpose) and enliven the learning process.
par Sophia V•
Nice course. I only wish you focused on the target audience a bit more, and did not asume we all need to be "amused" with weird antics.
par JENNIFER O•
Like the first course in this series, this is very easy to understand and the instructor delivers the lesson as if he is in a classroom.
par Diana A•
Some of test questions are vague and create a kind of misunderstanding. I hope this will be considered as a frienly advice, not a claim.
par Obinna A•
It was quite refreshing to have an insight about the history of language learning and the different approaches employed. Good course!
par Dan B•
The course was well done overall, but I was surprised by the number of English grammatical errors in a class about teaching English.
par Eric B•
The course was well presented and used great instructional design. It provided a good overview of various teaching approaches.
par Martha L R A•
Very well presented. Helped me remember a lot from what I studied in my university and gave me a clearer and new perspective.
par Nangamso T K•
I like how the course was structured, it made it easier to absorb all the historical comparisons of instruction methods.
par GONG L•
The course is perfect . If my friends need this kind of classes , I would recommend this one. But not efriends around me
par Marina T•
The classes were fantastic! Although I found this course's assignments a bit boring. But I am very content generally!
par Christian A M R•
Excellent Course! It taught me that I can take good things from the "bad" methodologies from the past.
par Sonia F•
Interesting course. I learnt a lot about how the mind works and how we can influence our students.
par Saltanat B•
It was a very interesting course. So now I know about all the evolution of teaching English.
par Jessica J•
It's very helpful to understand teaching language. The origin of every step of skill.^^

Muito interessante conhecer os métodos de ensino e como eles mudaram através do tempo.
