Extremely informational, well presented, with questions that stimulate reflection. The optional reading material is food for thought. I hope to see more courses from the same professor and University.
I've taken a number of online courses on linguistics now, and this one was by and far the best. The material covered is indepth and engaging, and the professor's enthusiam makes the videos a delight.

Sometimes it was hard to understand the concept the professor was trying to make, because some grammatical forms were wrong and therefore the whole concept misleading. Otherwise very interesting course and thank you!

The course is excellent and the videos are very entertaining and engaging. The only problem I had was that the test questions were sometimes confusing and several of their answers could be considered true.

This was an interesting but challenging course. What I would recommend as an improvements is that the quizzes included comments for wrong answers and suggestions what material to re-read or listen.

It is a great course. With truly interesting guests, well organized, with helpful complementary material (Ethnologue and papers). The only thing to fix are some quizzes (specially, the first one).

I am essentially learning languages for work or for fun but this course gave me an opportunity to consolidate some knowledge / understanding about languages and across many languages. Excellent!

Good introduction to linguistics led by a charming Professor with great enthusiasm for his subject. It was certainly enough to convince me that the study of linguistics is not for me

It's fantastic to have a brief look into the intriguing Linguistics. There's so much to learn. But some of the readings and test might be too difficult and improper for a beginner.

There's just one problem: the exams. The questions and logic behind the answers are not clear enough. It's an excellent course and certainly, it would be relevant to my career.
The course was a nice introduction to linguistics, many topics were covered, but not in a very detailed way. I was expecting more examples from different languages.

Interesting way of presenting the basics of linguistics. Helps a lot to organise crucial informatinon in one's memory. Lessons, however, are too similar.

Good introduction course for linguistics, although some quiz questions are asked ambiguously and no choises looks right, and no one knows the answer.
創建者 Nata S•
A very nice introduction, covers a variety of topics that different branches of linguistics study, is not theory-heavy and is quite entertaining.
創建者 William F•
This is a decent introduction to the field of linguistics that is easy to understand and accessible to those without previous content knowledge.
創建者 Hazem A•
A great introduction to linguistics! Enjoyable although I found some difficulties in some topics! Recommend it to all beginners in the field.
創建者 Sallai K•
It was an interesting course overall but I wish it was more detailed in some areas. However, it a comprehensive course of the basics.
A comprehensive introductory course to the study of linguistics. Would be even better if it covers more applied linguistics topics.
創建者 Daniele C R•
Very nice work on the various fields of Linguistics, high level interviews, but rather laborious and time consuming quizzes.
創建者 Paveen P•
The only downside is that it was too short. Very informative and I've learned a lot that would prove useful in psychology.
創建者 Liz J•
I enjoyed the course and learned a lot. I wish there had been more interaction in the discussions, though.
創建者 Franco A C C•
Es un buen curso. Una lástima (y una sorpresa) que no tenga un video conclusivo luego del último módulo.
創建者 Xiaoyun Y•
It is a great course including details and all aspects of linguistics. It satisfies my curiosity!

Material is excellent and very interesting. Test questions can be confusing and poorly phrased.

Very enjoyable however, I feel that Quiz Three needs to be looked over for software problems.
