"This has been one of the best courses I have taken, ever. It brought reading and writing to a new academic level and I would like to continue learning this, especially being in the sciences where there is not much focus on developing these skills in the curriculum. In order to become a clear communicator of the science we do and analyse, we need to hone these language skills!"
