The goal of proper grammar is to ensure that words are structured in a clear, correct, and understandable manner.

for me the course would be a lot more interesting if the course were read aloud and not all reading. That makes it difficult to concentrate especially when you start to nod off. but in the end this is a good course to apply to training others at work.

Clear and easy reading content.

It would be great if there is video subtitle for non-English speaker

for me the course would be a lot more interesting if the course were read aloud and not all reading. That makes it difficult to concentrate especially when you start to nod off. but in the end this is a good course to apply to training others at work.
