I am creating my first ever udemy course. It is an English course for beginners and for people who want to improve their pronunciation in English.
I have made an introduction/promotional
I would like to know the languages of my potential students here at udemy, so I can also have other versions with other subtitles.
I am going to try to attach my video (2minutes and 48 seconds) and I would love any feedback on any aspect of the video.

A couple notes:
- I think from a technical standpoint, the quality is good. Your lighting is acceptable, your camera angle and background are good. The sound is ok,
- I'm not your target population and I understand why you are enunciating like you are but to me it sounds very unnatural. Also, I think when you make your eyes very large, it is distracting.
- I like the subtitles in Spanish but I think you should also have it in English (dual subtitles). If people are trying to learn, it would help them to read what you are saying. I hope this makes sense.
- Last thing, the first few seconds of your video is when you keep or lose your audience, I would skip the slideshow of images and just go straight to your welcome. Maybe superimpose those images as you are speaking so that we are not just looking at your face the whole time.
Best of luck to you.

Thank you very much Greg, for taking the time to watch my video, and then for providing me with feedback.
Everything you wrote makes sense and I am now going to do more research on how to make improvements.
Have a great day!
