  • Letter to Viewers When I first began taking this course, I asked myself one question: what do I want to learn? I took an AP Language class my Junior year, so I already knew about many things in English. I really wanted to learn more grammatical parts to English. I also wanted to learn more vocabulary and use it in everyday conversations. I can definitely say I have met all my goals. Not only have I learned more about the difficult parts of grammar, but I have analyzed the weekly vocabulary words and use them in every conversation I can. This English class has not only helped me further my education in English, but has also helped me make friends. I stuck to the daily schedules of work, which made it much easier for me to divide my work accordingly. I have truly enjoyed this class.
