My Experience in English Composition

Good Essays
My experiences in this six-week English Composition-I class have been challenging and rewarding, as well as educating and developing. As far as challenging, I have only been able to attend half of the classes and therefore have only learned half as much as I could have learned otherwise. Although extenuating circumstances have kept me from attending every class, it has been a pleasure sitting under the teaching of the course instructor. As far as rewarding, I have been able to gain knowledge, understanding, and wisdom in the realm of the writing process. As far as educating, I have been informed of the basic foundation of the writing process. As far as developing, my confidence and skills have steadily improved. Over fourteen years ago, I took English Composition-I for the first time. I attended every class, wrote descent papers, and completed all of my homework. I managed to get a high grade in the class. However, since those days, I have lost touch with the fundamentals of English Composition. I am retaking a full academic year of English Composition for mainly two reasons: First, I need the courses as prerequisites for admission into a foreign medical school, which prefer higher grades. Secondly, I need to improve my writing skills for the Medical College Aptitude Testing (MCAT) writing sample. Taking English Composition-I for the second time has been a rejuvenating experience. Relearning the precious essentials of English Composition-I have caused me to be a better writer. There have been several highlights in the class that have made the experience better: The insight and enthusiasm of the instructor; the hand-chosen homework assignments; the concepts of the standard composition textbook; the illustrative stories of The Longman Reader; the detailed look into process analysis; the peer review practice; and, the revising, editing and reflections have been priceless. I believe these elements of English Composition-I have adequately prepared me for English

This house was challenging for me because of the time I spent writing papers, the time i spent with a writing touter, and reviewing the papers. Every paper I wrote…

    English Composition II There are mixed reviews on online studying. During my research for articles on this subject, I found that more people are choosing online education instead of being in the traditional classroom setting. This appears to be a trend that in the eyes of some people will gain ground on classroom learning. Earning a college degree online will benefit mainly people with full time jobs. As Jessica Groach-Santina views it, “This form of education, will allow…

    My Experience with English Before going to the University, I had the background of learning English over nine years ago when my parents encouraged me to go to an English Institute, and when the following year I had some English classes at High School. My experience with English in both places was very different from each other. On the one hand, I had studied English at an Institute for seven years, but when I first entered this Institute, I found that I could barely say a word. First of all, we…

I started writing in English a couple of years ago, but I had never written an essay in English when I was living in my country. Writing in a foreign language has been a really good experience, because it is funny when I try to make a phrase. First, I have an idea in Spanish. However, I have to write it in English, the confusion starts when I try to translate my previous…
