Over the years, I have been studying on different online course sites. And I am proud to say, COURSERA is the best online course site I have access so far. Good Tutors, quality videos graphics, you get chance to share you views with your peers, it also help you to know how best you understand a topic with after topic quiz. So nice and perfect.

Good course but the British instructor's constant lip smacking just got on my nerves.

I am having deep pleasure to have classes of this course! I am from Russia, Moscow city and this course is followed and controlled by the American Center volunteers under support of the Embassy of the U.S. in Russia. Teachers and the way they teach listeners with the Journalism concepts and its principles are very clear, interesting and fun! Now I am on the 4th week and we have already written a small article that was assessed by the same listeners as you from all over the world. It is really great platform not only to get knowledge but also share your ideas. I really appreciate hard working attempts of speakers who lead the course! A big thank you from Russian listeners!

The syllabus was awesome. The two professors were amazing. They could convey concepts in a way you could retain the information long after the course. That was a major feat. When I watch a news program on CNN or BBC now, the terms I have learned from the course literally jump at me, such as, "the 24-hour news cycle is presenting a human interest story on the untimely death of Anthony Bourdain". I appreciate news reporting with new eyes and ears. I never thought I would need a refresher course on grammar, but I picked up a lot of useful pointers from the language use section. It is a brilliant course!

Wonderful course! Very structured, informative, and fun. If I were in charge, I would transform this online course into a longer, at least 4-part program with more “exercises”, more assignments to practice in ESL and writing. Thank you to the creators of this course and the instructors who were great! I really like the differences in the teaching manner and pronunciation of Mr. John Cotton and Ms. Eve Litt, - thank you very much for improving my English skills. P.S. Can I now tell my friends that I 😉took a course at the University of Pennsylvania?

I truly enjoyed and loved this course, I'm majoring in modern languages, so of course my main field is directly English, German and French education. I looked up at this course and found interesting the curriculum and assessments. I hope in a near future I take a master's degree in journalism, I love to read, inform myself, express my ideas through text and passionate about writing too. If you look forward to being a journalist or love to write, this course is perfect for you!!! highly recommended.

I am really touched by the way the course content is designed. Special thanks to John Cotton, Eve Nova Litt. Their diction is awesome and the content out lay is superb. one question to them after learning this course can we take the role of the Journalist, Blog writer . Indian council for Working Journalists do recognize this certification is my concern. Other wise my special thanks to Pennsylvania State University for giving me this opportunity to study, learn, strengthen the skills of my desire.

I think course has a great influence on me because I am a student majors in journalism and communication,so I need to improve my skills on it.The course has tought me a lot of professional skills about pitching,writing,broadcasting and so on,I had a complete learning about news.But there is an error through checking others' homework which is someone give grades freely and have no responsibility baout others,so I think it is necessary to rigid some rules to restrain somenone's behavior.

A very instructive course for both native and non-native English speakers seeking to build foundations in journalism. As the editor of a specialized publication looking to gradually transition into traditional journalism and reporting, I found this to be a great introduction to the field of journalism. My only remark is that some of the course material is quite easy for native speakers, although there are ways to make the course challenging even for high-level English speakers.

I really enjoyed doing this course. I aspire to become a journalist in the future and this course gave me a fair understanding of things like the principles of Journalism, how it began, the challenge of the Digital Era and how it differs from the Traditional Era. All valuable information that I will take with me in future studies. I would recommend this course to anyone seeking to enter into the field of Journalism or for persons who has a desire to improve their English.

Thanks to the coursera that gave me this opportunity to increase the level of english writing, and helped me to understand some concepts of journalism. I was very happy to follow this course because it was facinating, and very encouraging to study the theory of journalism, as well as english grammar. Teachers have also explained everything more clearly, the video, and readings were very supportive , and vocabulary learning have been relevant to this course. Thanks

El curso es bastante completo, las actividades por unidad son muy buenas, interactivas y me parece excelente que tenga actividades y lecturas extras para practicar un poco más. Propongo un nivel dos de este curso de inglés en el que se traten temas como periodismo de investigación, de datos y de análisis. El vocabulario sería más extenso y técnico y ayudaría a personas que ya llevan tiempo en esta profesión ¡Gracias por permitirme formar parte de este curso!

Excellent course., logically-organized, taught brilliantly by John and Eve. I loved every moment of it, especially writing the assignments and being reviewed by peers and learning by reviewing my peers. I've learnt so many things- pitching, designing the lead, writing a news report, digital journalism, broadcasting, the tenets of traditional journalism. I found the course enriching and rewarding. Thank you Eve and John. I will recommend it to my friends.

The course took me on a absorbing journey by simplifying what would have been a difficult task to embark on. Right from get go, objectives were outlined without ambiguity. I found the teaching module enriching to say the least. I gained a lot though I wasn't a rookie in journalism before going through the course, the experience has helped enormously in broadening my frontiers and scaling up my news reporting skills. It was simply awesome!

The course (English for Journalism) was invaluable as it enabled me to develop a better understanding of the basics of English writing for journalistic assignments, the

various important principles of Journalism that must be followed & the various aspects of news reporting. The course content was lucid in style which made it easy to understand and allowed me to test my knowledge at each stage. I am extremely happy that I enrolled.

The best online course! A repetition of knowledge from journalism and learning English in one. I am delighted! Thank you to the lecturers. Although we didn't meet in person, I have the impression that I know you! I hope that I will still be able to take another course at such a high level. I am particularly grateful for the funding. This was very useful, especially in times of epidemics. Thank you Penn and thank you Coursera!
