Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would only recommend it to those international students who aren't well versed with English fluently. I felt I was a bit too over qualified for this course. English is my first language but as I was an international student, I was required to do this course. Most of things I learnt were from reading the articles and did not learn much in class.
Some topics were interesting. I did learn a bit more about composition but it did not stick with me as time went on. I felt I did not learn that much from this course except a bit about the homeless situation of San Francisco which I would have learnt anyway.

Advice for students:
Just do as the teacher wants your essays to be. Do work on time and do everything step by step.
