Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I know writing or the English subject may not be for everyone, but if there's one thing I learned form this course is finding my voice as a writer and being comfortable with writing about anything. While all writing assignments are expected to be professional and scholarly, this course allows for room for you to write about your personal matters or everyday life. This is important because you'll find yourself leading your writing on to a bigger topic that you can connect with. Once you see the bigger connection you made you can find ways to argue why whatever you wrote about is significant to you or others. You learn to argue and argument is the main idea of this course. If that doesn't interest you then one thing this course will do is teach new strategies that you can use on papers for other courses.
I learned to be more organized with the flow of my ideas on paper. I also learned that an introduction does not always have to be a paragraph long as long as you can make your topic and side of the argument clear. I also learned that argument doesn't always have to sound professional because there are different ways to appeal to your targeted audience.
