Absolutely wonderful and engaging course on Improving one's command over the ENGLISH LANGUAGE - written in particular. I was totally bowled over by the erudition, the quizzes, the resources, and the lectures. The instructor was nonpareil. I wished I had done this during my halcyon years.

I am encouraged to read more and look for sentences I like. I can dissect these sentences and compare them to the lectures on what makes a good sentence. The Resource Library has an abundance of books and articles available to students that is worth more than the price of the course.

The lectures are engaging and funny. You really do learn a lot. The samples/related literature cover a wide range, and you'll notice that they're kept updated, too, which is awesome. It's great if you wanna brush up on your grammar or need some ideas to be more creative.

This course will take your writing to a whole new level. By far the most inspiring, compelling, and down-to -earth scholar I’ve ever come across _ Patrick Barry is an academic on a mission to trim the flab of the overly cluttered legalese writing.

Tips, techniques and grammar asides, the most important thing I've learned is: writing well is a force of persuasion. And I enjoyed sampling a wide range of good writings, works that I wouldn't have encountered otherwise.
