I had Basis grammar drilled into me at school 50 years ago.I wanted to revise all those. forgotten details of our language. This is exactly what I was looking for and was able to absorb the context quickly. The school children of today would have a lot of difficulty doing this course as it is no longer considered important in Education today. I showed it to my sister who teaches English. The better students know when text is incorrect English but don\\'t know why.

The course made me realize that I remebered more about English Grammar than I thought. It is sixty-four years since I did any formal study of this subject. However, I found that my basic use of English was, on the whole, correct. I intend to use this course as one step in my goal to record the details of my fifty-six years association with the aviation industry.

A very well written course - it’s easy to follow and understand, which makes it ideal for those for whom English is a second language. Thanks, Peter!

The fields covered greatly enlightened my understanding of the written language ‘English’. The easy step by step instructions and helpful links made it both instructive and enjoyable. On to the next project, Writing for Pleasure.

Self paced learning is perfect, because I do not get time every day. This was a great revision, revisiting one of my favourite subjects. Schooldays were many moons ago. Thank you.

This was such a great wake-up call for me and it showed me how far I was neglecting my English in speech as well as in my writing. Wonderful and thank you Peter.

The content was very clearly laid out, easy to find for each section and informative. Some I knew, however the historical backgrounds I did not know in the lesser topics eg chocolate, vinegar were excellent. Having never done such a course before I felt somewhat out of my depth at first getting onto the course I managed it and after that, it was plain sailing. On a personal note, please thank all those who were involved in the organising, running of it and the technical side at your end. Well done. I am full of admiration. I look forward to joining another course in the near future.

I am passionate about food and I am familiar with a variety of cuisines. The course gave me a better understanding about how food has evolved. I have a multicultural way of life and knowing the history of food enriches my experience of it.

This course has taken ages to complete because of family and business demands. However it has helped me in my 33 year long quest for my tribe. While much of the course was easy for an old stager like me, it is, and will be excellent for those in their formative family search years. For a subject that is basically about dead people, the dynamics of information sources change with breathtaking speed. At a recent Genealogy Expo I attended, 3 significant sources of data changed dramatically during the 2 day event. Happy Trails.

For me the course corrected a couple of my thoughts, but generally, it was encouraging that I was on the right track with my research. Of necessity, my research time is sporadic so I tend to lose track of things. The course was good refreshment.

Thank you for providing an interesting course, Genealogy Online. You suggested early in the course that I may have been a little too advanced for it. In some respects that is true but the course increased my knowledge of where to look for information, places that I wouldn\\'t have thought of looking. For example: I followed up your recommendations for overseas/link newspapers. I am also grateful for your pointers towards electronic publications and also to the course, Writing Family History. My database programme is The Master Genealogist; while it is great for keeping records, its Report formats and others similar that I have accessed, were not what I wanted. I had a little store of family anecdotes that I wanted to be passed on in our family; Writing Family History will let me do that.

Thanks very much for the course. I have enjoyed it immensely. I just wish I had more time to get into it but that will come. I have bought a copy of Legacy - got a good deal on EBay. I have not yet joined Ancestry but will do so later. I really wanted to find out where my family came from to Australia and although there is some problems finding out the origins of my grandmother - I am sure I will get what I want with some persistence. All seem to have come from the UK and Ireland. I was watching Time Team the other night and suddenly realised that I was connected to those people and places they are digging up! Genealogy certainly adds a new dimension to one’s life. Even though I am somewhat restricted by family responsibilities I am thinking it would be great to visit the places they came from. Or I can use the internet to get some idea of the history of the area at the time. Ted, your course has opened a whole new world for me and it is the first time since my husband’s death 8 years ago that I have got excited about anything much. It seemed that with his death someone had turned off the lights for a long time. Anyway, all the best with your searching and your life. It has been a pleasure to know you through this course.

I found the topics quite interesting and informative, certainly will provide ideal reference material long after the course has finished.
