He had some good points but his presentation was lacking. Sadly have to say he loves his own voice. Dull is the word that comes to mind.

A brilliant course from a charismatic professor, absolutely loved it. I feel like I've learned much from these lectures, and am much more confident in my speaking. Thank you.
