    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course increased my ability to read, write, and understand literature tremendously. If you are someone who doesn't think they can write essays very well, then this course is perfect for you. It helps your understanding of the English language and how it works, and teaches you about literary devices that help you better understand what authors are trying to convey with their writing.

    Course highlights:

    My ability to write essays skyrocketed after the AP English Language. Writing so much wasn't always fun, but it sure did help. Reading the required books wasn't even boring, they were actually really entertaining. Discussions in class were always fun as well. Everyone had the chance to share their opinions on the topic, and creative ideas were encouraged. I know this course will help me with future essays and assignments because of all of the writing practice we had.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always read the required books. Sparknotes, cliffnotes, and summaries simply won't cut it. To write about or take a test on the book, one has to have complete understanding of the novel, not just a summary. Know what the book means, not just what happens in it. Before taking a test, try to recognize the literary devices an author is using. This helps you completely understand what is going on.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class to anyone wanting a relaxed classroom environment, with coursework that is not too taxing but is still beneficial to learning. It is not too difficult, as long as you keep up with the work. A fair amount of book reading is required for the course, but that can be expected with an English class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the common characteristics on medieval poetry, such as caesuras and a kenning. We have also learned how to write a proper essay in both MLA and APA formats.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not get behind on work. It is a very easy course if you keep up with everything. Also, never forget, vocab quizzes are every Friday. The professor may forget to mention it throughout the week, but that does not mean the quiz is canceled. You are responsible for knowing the vocab.
