  1. Electronic teacher


    This course may have something to offer but the first module consists of an electronic voice, mispronouncing words and missing inflections and emotions as it drones on from a script laid over a couple of very dull photos. Terrible. I can’t continue with the course if this is what I have to look forward to module after module.
