Today I finished the course! Thank you. I wish that all of the sentences that were used as examples in all the lessons had been deconstructed. Since I needed this course, the repetition would have aided my understanding immensely.

I am finishing this course with the uncertainty of whether a comma should have followed Today in the opening sentence.
