In this course, you’ll practice the sounds of American English that might sometimes be confusing. You'll practice both consonant and vowel sounds. You’ll also learn about the things that give English its special “music,” such as how to stress the right syllable in a word, how to make your voice go up and down in a natural-sounding melody, and how to naturally connect sounds and words. Learning these things will help you speak more clearly and make sure that others can understand what you're saying.

The instructors were very clear in their objectives.
I enjoyed the course and therfore completed it before the schedule . Thanks Coursera for making learning so easy!
the course is wonderful it makes you aware why does the American English sound the way it does
the course will improve your pronunciation skills and enhance them
Take it, it's worth it
I like this course! The teachers have taught me a lot about pronunciation. You need to try this. Moreover, I think it would be great if we also got the score from the teachers or AI.
I think this is a good class for beginners or people with pronunciation difficulties. not that helpful for more advanced learners though. so it depends on your level of mastery of the language.
