Still clearly remember the first day of class. Professor, you are very honest and humorous. You tell us that you are teaching in this summer because you have to pay rent, you keep telling us that there has two doors in the classroom, we can leave or drop the class whenever we want. Although you have repeat this information for several times. People are still staying in the room, which I am one of them. As this class goes on, I realize taking this class in the summer is obvious not that easy, and things and stuffs we learn and read in this class are totally different from what I expect them to be. At the same time, be honest to say, reading and understanding the novel, poems, and Shakespeare are not my interest, instead they are my weaknesses. Especially, when I have to understand and writing about them in the summer.
Moreover, every essays I wrote in this class is a huge challenge to me. While writing the essay, I often struggle with the deeper meaning behind the reading that I have to write about. Most importantly, the biggest problem in the process of writing the essay is I often do not know how to combine my ideas and sentences together, which is the grammar error of sentence structure. As an ESL student, English is not my first language; as a result, no matter in writing or reading, I always have to pay more attention and efforts than the native students, especially in this class because it is all about literature.

...many English classes; however, I never meet a teacher like you. You are very humorous and straight- forward, you always explain the reading in a way that makes learning interesting and not boring. I appreciate the way you teach and your attitude toward teaching. Thank you for all that you’ve done.
Overall, although I have to write four essays in seven weeks, I am not regret taking this class in this summer because I have learned a lot from this class. Most significantly, at the same time, this class lets me realize my writing skill and areas I need to improve, which give me an opportunity to make improvement and earn a better grade on my next English class. Eventually, I want to say thank you again, thanks for being such a great and humorous professor, and thanks for making this English class easier for us and teaching us with your wholesome patience and sincerity.

- My experience in the spring 2016 English 126 class has been an educational experience. Through writing essays in this course and doing journals and blogs I believe I have built a strong foundation in my writing. Being a little scrawny in grammar, I believe I have sculpted my skills. The learning objectives of this course were a big aid in helping me improve my writing style and grammar skills. Some of the English department learning objectives were to read and listen critically and analytically, to write clearly and coherently, to support a thesis, to formulate original ideas, to be able to respond in a proficient in writing, and to be able to offer a discussion in writing....

- Because Ethiopia has more than eighty different languages, I was lucky enough the majority of my life to speak more than three languages: Gurage, Tigrinya and Amharic, but not English.

Private schools were only for privileged students. Until the age of eleven I did not know anything about English. During the summer of fourth grade I went to the U.S....

- The social class system was designed to categorize individuals into different groups, such as upper, middle, and lower class. Of course, the idea of the social class system is something that is viewed differently by every single person. America is typically known for “The American Dream,” however achieving this dream is much easier said than done, especially for anyone outside of the upper class. I was raised in a two parent household, with my mother being the one with a career while my father dropped out of high school and is self-employed....

In this respect, English literature of the Renaissance may be seen as a refinement of its earlier works, helped in part by the collapse of the universal church and the rebirth of Greek and Roman ideas. Many of the things written about during this period-- the issues addressed in The Canterbury Tales for example-- were not entirely new subjects, but instead ones that been suppressed by the church or upper-class in previous works...
