Not too easy. Not too difficult.
When you go out into the 'real world' and start looking for a job, you are going to need good writing skills. Even though we can all speak English, good writing skills are important. Communications classes have really helped me with my writing style. Today, I work in the IT field and have to write letters, estimates, and reply to emails on a daily basis. Being confident in my writing skills allows me to present myself as a professional through my writing.
Overall, learning the differences about text/font size, and proper margins and headings when writing a paper have helped me in the professional world. Anyone attending college should always look forward to a communications class.

Advice for students:
Go into the course with an open mind and be ready to write. If you are not confident in your writing skills, be sure to email or even call the professor with questions or help. The professor was always there when I had a question about writing. When writing, your first draft should be your first thoughts that are coming to your head. Get all those ideas out on paper, then worry about adjusting and arranging them during your second or third draft. After a few papers, you should start to feel comfortable with writing.
