    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a difficult course, but well worth the time and energy. Dr. Wheeler is an amazing teacher! Required for English and Linguistics majors, but I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested. I never knew I liked the Vikings until this course! And who knew that I could learn to diagram a 70-word sentence?

    Course highlights:

    I learned the basics of grammar and was able to build on that foundation. The history of the English language is actually very interesting and highly relevant.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take lots of notes, or record the lessons. Find a study buddy, and don't be afraid to ask Dr. Wheeler for help.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is an extremely difficult course that covers a huge amount of material in one semester. I tried studying ahead of time, but I still wasn't prepared for it to be so difficult.

    Course highlights:

    The course starts with the earliest origins of the English language (Indo-European) and then goes through the Old English, Middle English and Modern English periods. In each period, influences from all over the world come into the picture. It's a lot to remember, and that's just the first half of the course. The second half of the course is dedicated to grammar. It starts with some of the basics, like punctuation rules, grammar rules and parts of speech, and then gets into diagramming sentences. Passive voice and how to avoid it are also covered.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Talk to the professor ahead of time and ask what are the most important things you should know. I used the study materials on his website, but it wasn't enough and there were times where I got so confused that I couldn't even explain why I was confused!
