In English 100 we have written multiple types of papers and we have learned many new writing skills and strategies and ways to make our papers meet the collegian standard. English has always been one of my favorite subjects, I love writing papers and seeing the final copy and getting a good grade. However, English 100 has improved my writing skills in many different ways, I’ve seen the most growth in my grammatical skills. I’ve improved on how I use the same “types, endings” of words in sentences. Although, there is always room for improvement.
