This is a great course for an absolute beginner like me. The pacing is just right- not too fast and not too slow. I like that I can review as much as I choose, when I choose. I felt a sense of accomplishment pretty quickly because the course is chunked into small, manageable lessons. I am an English teacher so I really can relate to the struggles a language learner faces. This course takes those struggles into account and is very approachable and "user friendly". I highly recommend giving it a try. Abdeljabar has put a lot of thought into his lessons and he is very open to ideas and suggestions from his students to see that their learning styles and learning needs are all taken into account.
