English Composition I reviews
Great course. You will learn a lot about yourself.
Feel the touchstone require to much for such little grades
Course was informative. It took a while for essays to be graded but Sophia receives a ton of essays a day so I’m not complaining.
Great course. Kinda long but that is to be expected because of the essays needing to be graded. I learned A LOT about writing in general. Definitely improved my writing skills.
All the papers are too long. Aim for teaching to get the most in the least amount of words, not forcing people to write 1,000 words on something. Other than that, the course is fine. Oh, and if you are going to reference an essay in a test question, have the part there, or a direct link to it. That is all.
I am so glad that my counselor introduced me to Sophia. The video tutorials were so helpful and having the ability to replay the tutorials help with my style of learning.
This course helped me become a better writer and understand the rules of writing.
I learned a lot during this course. The feedback I received on my papers was fair and very helpful. Grading did take about a week each essay, but overall I enjoyed this course.
This was a very challenging but rewarding course. I have done alot of writing previously and still improved substantially. There is alot of writing but definitely worth it!
This course is very hard. Wasn't even enjoyable.
I enjoyed this course very much. I learned very useful information that I will use in the future.
This course was really informative.
This class was very challenging for me. English is my second language, and with this class I learned many things. If you need it for you carrer, take it! Prepare your self for challenges, and some essays, but if I pass you got this too.
I came in unsure about my writing abilities, and now I am much more comfortable putting together an essay. Definitely a wonderfully curated course.
Helpful lessons that have drastically improved my writing.
Great course ! Challenging
Great course! It clearly improved my writing skills and the instructions were easy to follow. Also, the videos give you a diversity of different instructors so you can learn the concept from different angles.
