Major issues with English pronunciation that makes the teacher only to read the power points without giving a depth on the subject, several mistakes on power point. Case studies are poorly explained. Positive: Well structured information. I think udemy needs to evaluate first the language before publishing a lecture.

Some content on the slides are hard on mobile devices to read because the size is too small. The audio quality is not the best for some sections.
