    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was a small, seminar-style class where the instructor would lead the discussions while each of the students would offer their thoughts and input. This way, I was able to learn about and see things from many different perspectives.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about how much responsibility I hold in the use of my language, as it is a very powerful tool that can be used to hurt or manipulate others, and it is important that I am aware of this if I wish to maintain a good relationship with my peers. In addition, it is essential that one may not be too critical or disparaging towards another person's use of language. Language has its roots in many aspects of one's identity, including one's culture, ethnicity, nationality, and many others. The implications of insulting one's use of language may be to think lowly of one's culture or race.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    While you may be able to get by without doing much reading, it can make classroom discussions so much more engaging and interesting, should you choose to read. Also, the essays, while there are several, are very much opinionated, so you need not worry about being wrong.
