This class was tough.
It is a good course that really focuses on the detailed parts of writing. With this professor no little mistake goes unnoticed, and although it can be frustrating at times it really does help one improve their English skills and become better academic writers.
One highlight of this course is that you become more aware of what you say and write within the first week. For instance, I learned about a style of writing my professor called "Dick and Jane" which meant that it was too repetitive or child book like. At first it was hard to distinguish because it seemed so normal, but after a while I began to notice it more which in the end really helped me throughout all my assignments.
