Sounds good (and thanks for the prompt reply).
I’m taking a look at the free course and it looks very promising (I like that there are review points with which I can gauge my current level before I start, since I already know some basic Spanish). In my case, I’m mainly trying to revive the ~4 years of high school and junior high Spanish classes so that I can pass a language proficiency exam (to be exempt from the language requirement of my college and pursue some other language).
Unfortunately your full course seems to start on April (and the exam I spoke of is scheduled to be held sometime in April), since you say those numbers are only with the material combined with the coaching, how far would the free materials get me?
In any case full mastery of the 1200 most frequent words in any language is usually enough for most purposes (and can always be expanded through reading) so I think I’ll go through the free course (you’re very generous for offering it for free btw).
