    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    An overwhelming majority of the class revolves around reading classic works as well as writing essays. The class truly expands your classical knowledge (and it's especially helpful when you're able to catch references in random movies) and improves your writing style immensely.

    Course highlights:

    Although my teacher made us write essays every Tuesday and do Voice Lessons almost every day that involved analyzing parts of works and take cumulative spelling/vocab tests every Friday, I quickly realized that all the work was improving my writing and literary understanding incredibly fast. Long classic works became truly interesting as my teacher brought humor to the characters and stories. With a few months to go before the national exam, I already feel prepared, and most of that has to do with the dedication and push of my teacher.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the novels/plays! I know it's very easy to Shmoop or Spark Note them, but I would only do that to verify the analysis you yourself have gathered upon reading or to summarize what you have read. Never should it be a replacement for the book itself. I only say this because if you give the books a chance, they will genuinely be interesting, or at least you will be able to remember them better for the national exam if you read them yourself. Try and place yourself in the characters positions and reading will not become a chore but rather exciting as if you're entering another world. Taking the national exam won't seem as daunting when you get to write essays about characters and themes you're emotionally invested into.
