    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The class is meant to help those whose first language was not english. The class is slow paced for those that need more help in the class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot on how to improve my grammar when it comes to writing essays.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class is pre-req for english 109. English 108 and 109 is extended for 2 quarters so this enables you to really get the help that you need in english.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it. You are taught to write as a college student and professor Barkawitz does an amazing job at that. He is very welcoming and makes you want to learn. I took it as an eight a.m. class and I was always asleep until he started to teach. The way in which he presents and interacts with you makes you feel like he is there for more than just a pay check, he genuinely wants to teach you. His explanations were always clear and he was always willing to answer any questions even if it meant he would answer the same reworded question several times. He was always available to explain anything in either office hours or through email and he made the course interesting. The purpose of it is to teach you how to write like a college student and he does a good job of that. Not only does he have you work with material that you can comprehend, but he is also very helpful and makes the class about comprehending how to write and not just putting words on paper to get an A.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write in the several different writing styles of different discourse communities. I also was able to develop an understanding of how to present my writing at a college level without losing my own touch as a writer. Since he has us attend mandatory office hours(only two for the entire quarter) and use the universities writing center ( only 3 for the quarter), I was able to learn how to work with the resources provided to me and how to interact with professors which is a great thing to learn not just for English but for college itself. This class introduces you to what college will be like and helps you learn how to transition from high school student to college student.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not be afraid to ask for help. The course can seen confusing at the start since we are not yet adapted to college, but that should not discourage you. This class will be very helpful in helping you transition so do not be afraid simply because you feel you are not a good writer because after the course you will definitely know how.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    He may be strict but his standards are not very different from a good high school.

    Course highlights:

    I have not taken this course but I have been in one of his classes and I learned that not all college essays are pages long.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    start doing your work the day you get it. If you put it off, it will start to pile up.
