What I would highlight I recently finished the Academic English course with Open Learning. I have taken so many English courses that I was very reluctant when I enrolled in with Open Learning. However, I was left very surprised with the organisation and structure of this one. This English course is the best course I have done so far and I would recommend Open Learning to anyone interested in mastering English within academia. Thank you very much!

What could be improved Nothing.
