    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    AP Language and Composition is a class that I would recommend to students who are very passionate about reading and writing. Through taking this class, I learned many rhetorical techniques that writers used in order to make their pieces more elaborate and persuasive. Undeniably, this class has a ton of works- which at some extent, some students might think, the homework would never stop, until they take the AP exam. However, I do think this class is worth it because not only students get to learn more about what does actual college course's work feel like (or in some cases, even more work than AP class), but students also have a better opportunity to develop their writing skills that could amazingly share their opinions to the public.

    Course highlights:

    Like I mentioned above, this class strictly focused on both writing and reading skills. I personally think the teacher did a good job on lecturing me the basic grammar skills I didn't had before. Because I was migrate to the U.S. when I was about 10, my grammar skills were poor compared to the others. In fact, English became my hardest academic subject at school since I did not found this language has any similarity with my first language, Cantonese. It was through taking the AP Language and Composition that help me strengthen my weaknesses. Besides learning all the basic English rules, what I found even more interesting was writing an essay in a short amount of time- around 30 minute or less. In my opinion, the timed writes make people think instantly since they are under time pressure; it is also a great practice for students who are planning to take the SAT with essay test in their high school Junior year. Overall, I loved the class environment, I loved my English teacher had well prepared me for future difficult courses or even difficult life decision.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Because this class involved many writing and reading assignment, I recommend students who plan to take this class not to procrastinate and or give up in the middle of semester. As long as they believe every difficulty is durable and having the ability to distress themselves, they would find the year went by quickly. Of course, in order to do well in this class, I think it is very important for students to set distractions away, such as tablet, phones, and laptop. This class is a very competitive class, so just a minute of silence is not enough for students to study thoroughly.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Ms. Coronado knows exactly what she's doing. All the torturous moments of timed writes and long nonfictional books are assigned for a reason. She doesn't do it because she hates us all, she does it because she knows what the test is like and she's making sure that you are well prepared.

    Course highlights:

    Debates. Debates are just the best. Not only do they bring up confidence in public speaking but they make you formulate ideas on the spot and allows for quick thinking which is always needed on an AP test, especially timed writes.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you actually want to take it. Not because all your friends are doing it. Not because you want a higher gpa. Take it because you're interested, because if not, you'll be wasting your time and taking up a spot of someone else who was probably interested. And chances are if you aren't interested you wont pass.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because you learn things outside of the classroom. We learned about moral values, poverty, and other issues. There were debates, but we respected each other.

    Course highlights:

    I gained confidence, understanding, and belonging. We all grew, struggled, and laughed together - the students and the teacher. We experienced what it would be like in a college course.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, believe in yourself and manage time. There is no right or wrong answer, it is free to voice out your opinion. The beauty of language: your voice.
