This school year I enjoyed this English class because it was not very difficult, but it was not easy at all. This year we did so many assignments and some of them were analyzing poems, emulating poems, writing a theme of a poem, presenting a speech in class and then working as a group to create a chapter.

But I am proud of myself because last year I never really participate and I feel that this year I participated more than last year, since I was not as shy. Also I know many students did not enjoy them but I certainly liked the vocab words we had every week. Since I am not that eloquent I enjoyed learning all these words, because I had seen them before but I did not know what they meant. I also enjoyed the vocab words because that is something that I can use for the rest of my life unlike other
