As a graduate in both English Literature, Written Composition, and post-doctoral studies in linguistics and Romance languages, I found this "Great Course" book...well, not so great. I learned nothing that I did not already know as far as Latin roots, ect. I gave it until the 5th section until I felt I was being tutored like a slow third-grader, and I had to return this course book. Perhaps it would be good for a 5-6th grader upon learningnot only English, but other Romance Languages. It is a course, but not up to the quality of The Great Courses!
