  73. 73. adopt a serious approach to the on-line part
  74. 74. Welcome to David's course! You are a great opportunity. No one university in Rome tests student's english level and prepare for free course with native language teachers to improve english knowledge. Some advices to you: - try to keep pace with homeworks and module's exercises: if you don't do the exercises every week, it will be more difficult to work later, above all if you are student workers (as I am!); - during the course, do the exercises of the EGU's study guide: if you are weak in some basic issues, you will re-study them in the unit of the book. Good work and best of luck for your professional success.... Sabrina
  75. 75. always check your writing
