TOP REVIEWS FROM CONSONANTS OF AMERICAN ENGLISH PRONUNCIATION
I liked the course. I think is really complete including tips for English learns, visuals for the position of the mouth and tests to score your skills.
The first few weeks were very good, I got it right now, the last two were a little more complicated. I did not understand the symbols that the sounds represent.
First, I would thank my teachers and Coursera, who contributed to my life with milestones and helped me a lot with the course.
Thank the teachers for this course. The videos were short and clear. Tips was helpful. Studying was interesting.
