    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course teaches you not only how to write for an English Major, studying literature, but also teaches how to write for other subjects and for the future. For example, there are assignments where you have to write a letter, which could help you in the future if you ever have to write a letter of recommendation or something like it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write for many different subjects. Though I want to be an English Major, so writing essays for literature is what I will be doing in college often, it was very helpful to learn how to write other styles of essays and letters that I may have to actually apply in my future.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, it is important to stay focused and try hard. The easiest was to fail the class is to not try at all. If you put in effort and pay attention, it shouldn't be very hard to pass and the knowledge you get will help you in the future.
