    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you study each day. I would not advise waiting until the last minute to prepare for a test. Proper planning is always a good idea.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher is supportive and willing to help in your part. Sometimes, there will be tension with the teacher and the students. But I can guarantee if you spend time on your work, you will surely make progress.

    Course highlights:

    The final senior year of English can be a bit challenging as it's an upgrade from the previous English classes. I guess I learned to make the most of my senior years there.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    You at least need to do your work and pay attention to the lesson. Usually, patience is a must since problems may arise if people cause them.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    AP Lang is an integral course for understanding the fundamental concepts and formulas for writing, rhetorical devices, in-depth psychoanalysis of people, and expressing one's creativity within understanding and explaining nonfiction works.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course would certainly include the big group discussions we had daily because they were beneficial to my understanding of the plot progression of the stories we read, the motivations of the characters, the significance of recurring motifs, and the opinions of the students on the thematic ideas embedded within the stories we read and how they were to modern times. In addition, I enjoyed the group projects that involved AP preparation and the freelance essays we had on the stories we read because it gave me the opportunity to use my creative license in a unique way. Through this course, I learned how to effectively annotate for important elements (ex: symbolic details and figurative language) in passages, express my ideas in an intriguing and cohesive manner, and gain confidence in my writing abilities for now and for my future endeavors with writing.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend that students are thorough with annotating passages and reading the books assigned in class fully (read in between the lines; go beyond reading for comprehension) in order to increase one's chances of success on the free response quizzes that require identifying the situation being described, the significance within the story, and its connection to the real world. In addition, I would advise students to always participate in the big class discussions because one can only take away as much as one puts in. Participation in this class is key to understanding, intrigue, and overall mastery.
