This entails a kind of apprenticeship into the language, and progress is a result of the students’ own efforts. A strategy of continuous application in class, independent work outside the class, and fulfillment of all course requirements is essential to your success in this course. If during the semester you have any questions regarding the course evaluation or the course, please don’t hesitate to come to my office during office hours.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
