On the first day of class, my confidence was crumbled and I could feel that my English skills were weak when I first received my graded essay. I felt a great gap fixed between natives English speakers and abroad students. But at the same time, I thought positively about this class because it could give me a chance to cultivate my ability in English. I believe that the purpose of this composition class is to eliminate elementary essay skills and focus on the topic,the development , the organization, and the proper use of MLA style. Through the four times that I have written English essays, I have developed those skills. I was also able to find my strengths and weaknesses in my essays through a reflective self analysis. I’ve noticed that my strengths are to focus on the topic, being organized, and having well development. My weaknesses are diction/syntax, using proper MLA format, and making citations on an essay.
