    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend the course, because even though English 161 requires a few lengthy papers to be completed, it solidifies students writing, grammar, and critical thinking skills. Usually at the end of every week, the class is based solely on discussion, so students are encouraged to speak, express their ideas and communicate with one another. Also a presentation is required at the end, which counts for a final, and helps you reiterate and use the writing and communication skills that a student will learn in the class, and also give a start on how to improve students public speaking.

    Course highlights:

    What I have gained from this course is the ability to ensure that my thoughts and ideas are clearly conveyed throughout my writing. I learned to confidentially express my ideas in front of others, and to agree to disagree with how other people interpret a reading. I also have improved my writing skills immensely, and I am also able to proof my essays or any writing assignment efficiently.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advised students to read the assigned texts when due, because it will discussed in class , and discussion does count. Please attend class daily, because it is easy to fall behind in the class. Also, go visit writing centers/tutors to receive help on papers/essays to get their opinions and perspectives on your writing, because it can increase the quality of your paper.
