    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class prepares the student for the AP English 3 test. By taking this test, it is possibly to test out of and gain english credits in college. This is not only cost effective, but will save you time and stress as well.

    Course highlights:

    Reading the classic american literature like Slaughter House Five and The Catcher in The Rye was the absolute best part of the course. During this course you will start to further develop a writing style, and these books help with that so much!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not slack off and do you current event articles. Really take advantage of the journaling time to challenge your writing abilities.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's a highly interesting course to take. Even though it was a requirement for the degree, the professor made it interesting.

    Course highlights:

    You're going to learn how to put together some more abstract ideas about literature. The course is very discussion based. This means you'll be doing a lot of reading at home and then diving into it with the professor leading the discussion, but with classmates contributing at every turn.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Never ever skip the reading. This goes for every language class, but this one especially. It is part of the core of this course that you do the reading and if you do not you will be lost and you will fail.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the teacher is amazing in teaching English, and funny for the moments between teaching. The course offers a very thorough look into the English language and I came out of that class very enlightened.

    Course highlights:

    I learned better and higher vocabulary while in that class due to having weekly vocabulary quizzes, and had very interesting debates over moral and ethic issues. There was also the fact that the teacher can be as sarcastic as the students, which was entertaining.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just, do the work. Don't whine, don't argue, just do the work and put in the required studying time. Do the work, study for the quizzes, participate in class, and you'll be fine.
