great way to learn when we can't go places
That was an excellent presentation. Mr. Ivanov was clearly an expert, but he spoke very well in plain language, there was a good structure to the lecture, and the visuals were very well-chosen and well-used.
He was very difficult to understand. Started counting “a,” uhs.” continuous pauses trying to find the correct word or phrase in English. I hung up after 30 minutes. He did not have his head aligned in the camera frame for us and it was very distracting and it would have been a whole lot easier to understand his accent if we could at least see his mouth. Seems like a nice guy so feel badly about giving him a negative review but now I have had a 50/50 experience with Context. Even though there are other topics of great interest to me I will not be rushing to sign up for a class anytime soon. Very unfortunate.
The conversations have been interesting and covered a broad variety of topics.
