the course is generally wonderful and contain many beneficial techniques which provide an overall grasp over the reading exam. However, it can be developed to a paid course which contain more and longer exercises. Furthermore, the tutors might consider splitting screen for PC users in order to see the text and the questions all at once.

I am very thankful for the great materials that you offered me in this course.

Wish you the best.
