English easy to understand
By Brent H. on 17. May 2021 for Hypersensitivity and Autoimmune Disease

My lectures at school are good but sometimes my professors English is difficult too understand. With Lecturio, all of the presenters are well spoken and in addition to the lectures the mini-quizzes hold me immediately accountable to what I should have gleaned from them.

Perfect and simple
