    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because I learned many different styles of writing a paper. Not only did it improve my overall writing, it also improved my public speaking as we had to give oral presentations.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were definitely the essays and the presentations. I improved my grammar, learned how to write an analytical essay, and improved my vocal skills when presenting a presentation in front of a public.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice for this class would be to not procrastinate. Do not leave the essays for the last few days before you give them in. Make sure to reread and edit your papers. Also, go in for office hours because Mrs. Neilan is very helpful.
