    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would absolutely recommend this course. It could almost be called and English Intensive course, with how much reading and analyzing we did - mostly to prepare ourselves for the AP English exam - but it was still incredibly fun. Our teacher was excellent. She listened to what we had to say, allowed us to rewrite whatever we felt was necessary (because the grades were less important than our personal growth and development), and she teaches in a clean cut, clear, easy-to-understand style. Definitely high expectations of students and students' work habits, but if you like English and want to improve, this is the course for you. There may be competition among the classmates, but generally it's a good environment for everyone to learn together.

    Course highlights:

    We went through the entire history of English Literature from Beowulf, the Bible, and Chaucer to T. S. Eliot and Allen Ginsberg, in consecutive order. My favourite highlights were the debates we had in class! We discussed every intense, controversial topic you can think of (Religion, LGBTQ+, Sexuality, Feminism, Death) and every day was a new topic. Before I took this course, I thought I knew how to write, but I was definitely wrong. I've never learned so much about writing a good essay (and this course is what helped me pass all my exams, plus the AP exam, with flying colours).

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Hand in your work on time, and complete it as best you can. You can rewrite whatever you want until the final, but your mark will improve drastically if you at least try to complete your first draft on time. Also, have an open mind. In the class you discuss a lot of topics that many people are closed-off about, and, while you won't have to give an opinion if you're uncomfortable, being willing to speak makes the class so much more fun.
