The course is delightful and even though I am traveling, I will find connections to continue with it.

Hey all, I'm Ross from the UK. Just came back after working in Beijing for a couple of years. Don Quioxote has always been a book I wanted to work my way through but had struggled so far. Loving the course so far, great work!

I'm enthusiastic about the artwork, the graphics, the professor's love of the text and the overall high quality. I'm looking forward to learning with you, good luck to all.
