    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course was very well put together, however the schedule went from very slow paced to having 1 week to write an essay.

    Course highlights:

    There were many grammatical teachings, which helped when it came to writing. Also, the style in which the teacher wanted the paper written was affective overall.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you pay attention to every little detail, do not act as though you are formally writing.
