    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    AP Language was the best worst class I've taken in high school. I know a lot of people are afraid to take it because they know it's so challenging, especially if you have Ms. White. I would recommend someone to take it exactly because it is so challenging and exactly because of Ms. White. She is a very harsh grader, but she doesn't start grading people on skills until she has done everything she can to teach you these skills. English is not my native language, and I came to the U.S only 3 years ago. Because of that and many other reasons, AP Language was the most vital class I've ever taken. Undoubtedly, one appreciates the coarse later, when one writes his/her college essays, for instance. I am sure I will also be grateful for Ms. White any time I write an essay for scholarship or in college, or in my future job.

    Course highlights:

    The great thing about AP Language is that most of the time you write, write, and write again. With practice, comes perfection. Even more importantly, the coarse is build to make one challenge the conventional wisdom, seek paradoxical truths in society, find the irony in every day life. The coarse teaches you to write engaging, weird, yet so effective opening paragraphs. It teaches you how to utilize specific tone, be tight, and snappy, as well as sophisticated and credible. The class shapes you as a writer as well as a reader, who is able to recognize important literally devices in other works and who is able to use those in his/her works. Even more intriguing is the fact that in AP Language one is asked to connect everything to the present, prove that he/she is citizen of the world, engaged in public affairs. Ultimately, the class shaped me in a well-informed, sophisticated, yet opinionated writer, reader, and person as a whole.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    There are few things one should do to be successful in the class. The most important one is to read the news, be well-informed about what is happening in the U.S and in the other parts of the worlds. Using current events in one's essay, boosts the writer's credibility and allows him to support his argument well. Another advice I would give is not to be afraid to experiment with crazy frames and unusual essay structure. Often times, I would use a frame containing current events, close it with rhetorical questions, develop the different examples of my argument, and ultimately drive home my argumentative thesis at the end.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It was a really hard class, no kidding there. What I loved about this class the most was the sense of competition the teacher would create for us to help us improve our writing skills. That and the fact we had amazing topics to write about. Not the soft fluffy topics, no, the gruesome truth of the world and we got the chance to write and research deeper into it

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to do thoroughal research. It also taught me how to not accept what I immediately see and look into the topic much more before I make a decision.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Learn how to do proper research and lots of caffeine. I never drank those kind of stuff but a lot of my classmates say you will need it. Also, you need to be patient with your research because you will look at them for long periods of time
