    How are your free courses administered to a beginner like me


    Fuzu | November 26, 2015 10:11

    Dear Mary,
    Thank you for your feedback. We are in the process of making the test interface better and more informative for the user. At this point it is better to focus on the learning content itself. The videos include the right answers but often times it is not a straight-forward one. Doesn't matter if you don't get it right the first time. Repetition enforces knowledge.

    mary | November 21, 2015 08:07

    Sincerely Fuzu, i don't understand what answers i should give for these tests because i am doing my best, and every time I repeat them, i fail more..
    thank you
