- "I found the course helpful. I have been out of school for over 40 years and there were rules and such that I had forgotten. Working at my own speed was very good for me." -- JoAnne G.
- "I loved my instructor. She was very helpful, and was there when I had a question. Thanks to her, I am now much better at writing. Personally, I found all of it just as helpful as the rest. It was all amazing, and very helpful." -- Joslyn A.
- "I confess that initially I was hesitated to take the class. I had tried this type of on-line classes before and was very disappointed. However, my experience with UniversalClass has been completely different. I find the way the material was organized very helpful and easy to follow. The logic in the sequence of the lessons was perfect as it make complete sense for those like me, who are looking to refresh the school grammar studies and to learn new things. I have to say that I am very happy with the class, the material and the instructor. I know that she was very busy because there are many students on the class. However, she always took the time to review the material and to even make comments on the progress or the performance.
In my line of duty, I am responsible for a lot of writing, and as the time goes by, I find myself with added writing responsibilities. I am not a native English speaker, therefore, I always double/triple check my writing. That's why it was so important to me to get back to basics and make sure I know the grammar rules in the English language. I find that the time I spent completing this course was extremely valuable and it will pay-off with very good dividends in the future. Thank you and keep up the good work with your web-site, your resources and the material of the classes. I can't wait to start my next class." -- Edna V.

- "I really feel like I walked away from this class knowing a lot more and I may decide to retake it in 3-6 months. I have made up hundreds of flash cards that I plan to become very familiar with each of the terms. I was very excited when I finally grasped the whole affect/effect process and I know it will be just as rewarding when I get the others down as well. I bookmarked many of the test pages or links that were made available and I plan to use them often as well, to continue to learn. It was very easy to become familiar with the rules of grammar again and the lessons were very easy comprehend. I was very grateful to be given a second chance to improve my test scores if I scored lower than a 70%." -- Caryn R.
