Great class!
The speech of the teacher is a little bit confusing because of the hesitations between the sentences, but the content of the class and the examples are very good.
Solid and useful principles of light are taught in this class. Really useful to learn or review. His English isn't that great, so it can be a little difficult listening to, but it's worth it. Recommend watching at 1.25x speed.
