I found the course extremely fulfilling and learned a lot, however it might be worth it to take the course without the instructor. She was tough, she was rude and did not explain things so well. Save the money and take it without her!

The course was a lot of work. However, the professor was very helpful and encouraging. She graded assignments promptly allowing me to be able to revise and move on to the next topic quickly.

Each section has an online lesson that explains all the concepts relevant that part of the course. After reviewing the lesson, there is usually a quiz that helps solidify these concepts. The course helps one in constructing a well- written essay. The essays were often on topics of choice.

The English Composition I at Straighter Line shows students all the basic knowledge for academic writing. All the available resources are extremely helpful to gain knowledge and, the professor, if there is one, does the best job in explaining the topics that remained unclear.

The English Composition I course was fairly easy as I did so alongside with a professor. I was able to ask any and all questions I had and they were answered pretty quickly. I enjoyed writing the essays as they gave me a chance to be challenged in a creative way. I would recommend this course to any student who needs to get through College courses in a quick but efficient manner.
