    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course since it opens a wider door for students who are passionate writers and for those who are up to an academic challenge. Through my experience in the course, I put effort in the class and effort for my AP exam. Although I do admit the course was stressful and did require a great part of your own intellectual perseverance, I have learn more as a student and wish to take my new skills to college where I wish to pursue career in writing and teaching.

    Course highlights:

    I always had trouble in English, especially when it comes to writing. I had difficulties involving grammar, proper sentence structures and in general, the correct techniques to write a well written essay. Taking this course has help to progress in my writing and become a better writer. I would thank my English teacher for helping me and leading me to a better path in writing. For any student who enters AP English Language nd Composition I advice to not give up, to put their all in the class. It is up to you to put your own effort and your own time to the class.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in the class, you need to put attention to it especially when it comes to the summative and the essays in class. The essays will serve for you to better as a student in your writing skills and techniques. Also the summative serve to have an idea of how the multiple choice portion of the AP exam will count and be timed. Some tips I would give to students are; purchase or check out from library the AP English Language study book, take time to do your homework for the class and study from your notes, get enough sleep especially when you only have a week left for the AP exam and finally, do not procrastinate because it wont help you.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it only if you are willing to read and highly analyse the book or text to understand the more deeper and elaborated meaning of the text that the author tries to display.

    Course highlights:

    Some highlights I had were the many interesting topics that are not usually considered and applied in today's society and are either never realized or ignored.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    As long as you read the book or text and are able to make connections of understanding what is going on in the story, you will do just fine.
