Student Comments

Before taking the Fundamentals of Writing II class, I did not like to write in English. This writing class helped me to write paragraphs and now I love it! Special thanks to our teacher Sharon. She is a very good teacher. She gave us very good tips and she is a warmhearted woman.

The book, homework writing and teacher’s feedback were very useful in the Fundamentals of Writing II class. My writing improved a lot.
