My Personal Course Expectations
I am very pleased to be studying English Composition I. English is not my first language, so this is a personal challenge. My spoken English is satisfactory, but I must improve my writing skills.
During the next 14 weeks, I expect to learn how to become a better writer. I expect massive amounts of writing assignments, and I look forward to it. I understand is my responsibility to complete all the required reading material and submit assignments on time. I also understand that I must be prepared to devote the hours I personally required to study each week to be successful. I understand that writing is a process, in other words, practice will improve my technical skills and development as a writer.
I expect to understand and master as much as I can “written composition”. Writing is a complex skill, that will allow me to think, learn and improve my personal development. I expect this course will also help organize my life. Writing requires a person to be organized and creative and at the same time allows someone to be able to apply different steps to improve communication.
I expect to become proficient in the use of my journal everyday I come to the class. Journals and diaries help people meditate about their personal life experiences. I read that many successful people write in their journals on a regular basis as a way of “keeping score” of their life.
I expect that this course will improve my overall ability to learn new material. I always use writing to help myself understand and remember the material that I am studying. It helps analyze information to improve our understanding of the written word.
I expect that my instructor will correct my mistakes and encourage me to develop my writing style. I look forward to the challenge of this course, so I can move forward as a writer.
