-唔好睇少個七百字, 你係要睇幾萬字ge required reading先寫得出, 問題極度习鑽
-closed-book mini quiz問題亦極度习鑽 睇幾萬字ge required reading, 但只出5條short questions 最火滾係我睇完幾萬字內容, 佢竟然出作者介紹個part, 問佢邊間大學畢業(要識串)
-你要expect唔係American Culture, 係American Literature

The course is quite interesting in terms of content. The selected texts are interesting to read and the teacher is quite friendly but a bit hard on the scores. Do not take if your English is bad as most of the students are quite fluent in English.

The workload/activities include:

3 written critiques (700 words each)
3 5-min quizzes (5 questions each)
in-class free writing (write as much as you can)
1 group discussion

Overall, I recommend this subject if you are good in English and is interested in American culture or else do not take this subject.

If you like english or american literature, then this course is for you. Covers several topics like racism and immigration. 3 written critiques, 1 grp presentation on a covered topic.

Paul is a very good teacher
so nice and friendly

the workload of this couse is extremely light (1 presentation + 5 mins quizzes + 3 700 words assignments )

Do reminded that if u do not love american stuff ,do not take this course , and generally people who take this course have a good standard of english
at least they speak fluently
