Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I highly recommend this course because of the structure it gives you as an incoming Freshman and the simple lessons it teaches that set the student up for their future semesters and the rest of their courses. EN 101 is a class that manages to highlight all of the concepts of grammar and reading that often times, unless one is an English major, fail to acknowledge. The class is one I would recommend to each and every incoming college student because one is sure to be reminded of the importance of something as simple as good spelling.
Through taking this course I learned how to master my grammar, my essay writing abilities, my reading abilities, and all other small details that come with being able to read and write to the best of one's capabilities. I learned about various authors and pieces of literature but most importantly how to write in an educated manner that takes a student from the introductory stage to a stage of being able to read and write with ease and without a profound amount of self-doubt. I learned how to write properly in a university setting, I learned how to read in a manner where I made sure I was getting all of the important details that I needed, and I learned how to make sure that I was always organized and up to speed with my work. I gained more than just English lessons from taking EN 101.

Advice for students:
I would advise any student to take notes while in class and make sure that you take them well. Complete all of the assignments thoroughly because the lessons that are taken from those assignments are priceless. Never feel as if it is doing too much, or as if you aren't learning what you feel like you should - being reminded of where apostrophes go in sentences is something that we all need, even if one is a Biology major. Take the class with the knowledge that you are doing your brain a justice.
