    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    While being a basis for anyone starting the college experience, I felt much more confident in my paper writing skills after taking ENG 101. My teacher Ms. Rivers really showed me how to discern what format, phrasings, and general set up I would need to make an impact in my papers.

    Course highlights:

    I gained so much from taking this course; as an original English major, I had always had a love of literature and grammar, but I never had much confidence in my writing skills. I loved to write, but I didn't dare share my work with anyone! It just felt much to scary for me. Taking ENG101, I learned how to have a confidence in my own writing style. Better yet, I learned how to improve my diction, my speaking voice, and even refresh my memory on some of the more obscure grammar rules I had long forgotten that were holding me back. As a result, I learned how to take my wordy replies and condense them into plausible sentences.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would definitely recommend getting to know your teacher well; a big concern I had early on was that my writing style was excessive, sometimes whimsical. My teacher did not like this, at least not for ENG 101. The class is supposed to teach students structure and diction. I benefited much more when I stopped being stubborn about my own preference in writing, and I started to listen to the advice of my instructor. Also, reviewing your grammar lessons will definitely help.
