    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend English 101 with Professor Aksoy. He is the definition of a man who takes pride in his work. He makes the atmosphere in the class very open. He some one manages to talk to every student about their progress and push them to unlock their potential.

    Course highlights:

    I have gained critical thinking skills that won’t only help me analyze literature, but help me succeed in life. Professor Aksoy’s assignments are reasonable, as well as challenging. He is organized and well spoken. He also leaves room open for your own interpretation. He doesn’t run his class like a dictatorship, and for that is greatly respected by everyone.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Write down every single thing he says, he says it for a reason. Don’t forget to write down an ideas that you may conjure up, it’s important to keep your own voice as well. Don’t miss class either. Your notes are going to be different than every one else’s.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it, one because it is a required class. Two, the class strengthens your writing abilities through analyzing literary works and writing argumentative essays.

    Course highlights:

    We were taught the different techniques of writing. Especially when making arguments in your essays. Less summarization and more hard hitting arguments.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Follow the syllabus and make sure you thoroughly read what is required.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course since it introduces you to college level writing and thinking. This helps you see another side of English that you normally don't see in grade school.

    Course highlights:

    I think this class was really fun because I got to improve my English writing skills. When I entered college, I did not know how to write an essay. This class allowed me to practice writing essays and getting better at them. The class was interesting because the professor gave us a topic for the semester and made writing about it really fun. Now when I'm presented with writing tasks I feel more eager and confident to do them.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take the prerequisite English 28 because that will give you the foundation to writing. Once you complete it, I highly recommend to take this class the following semester. This class helps with other classes because you need to be a good writer to be successful in college. When it comes to learning the material, write down important notes and also words that you don't know. I suggest to stick with a professor that knows what they're doing and does a good job at explaining the material. Reading a few books can also boost your learning, whether its for studying or as a hobby.
