Taking English 1101 and 1102 has helped improve my writing skills tremendously.

My first essay I had to write in English 1101 was a rhetorical reading response, at the time I had no clue what a rhetorical reading response. I scored low on my first rhetorical reading response because I did not know how to write the essay properly. After using my connections book and revising my essay I received a high score. Once I learned how to write a RRR correctly, writing responses came naturally to me.

- Taking ENC 1101 this fall has taught me a few valuable components in regards to composition and college life. These past few months I have learned how to participate in an argument, source my research using MLA format and how crucially important it is to submit assignments ahead of time. Prior to taking ENC 1101 I could not participate in an argument because I wasn’t able to support my points with valid evidence. However now I can continue engaging in a debate and sometimes even win. One of the assignments I thought contributed the most in developing this skill was the discussion assignments we submitted online, we had to use examples and support our opinion on the topic we were given....

However the importance and recognition of learning English is for intercultural communication between countries for wider communication between multilingual societies like Australia....
