This can be vitally important for those who aspire to be a lawyer, a public speaker, and those who enjoy participating in pool tournaments.

Update: Always the last to know, I just learned that this course is now prefaced with the words "Press One For".

"I don't rock like dat."
Can anyone identify the verb in this sentence?

Always did bad in English. This may have something to do with the fact that I can't Write worth half a damn and my Grammar sucks.

I always did well in English.Grammar was boring,and I still can't make much sense out of sentence diagramming,but then neither can my buddy who has a PHD in English !!! Literature classes were usually interesting,(as long as it wasn't Moby Dick ! ) and Creative Writing was my fave.(go figure!)

It was and always will be my favourite subject at school (next to PE). I loved learning, I loved reading and I loved writing. All my English teachers in school loved me as I showed such a love and passion for the subject. One of my favourite teachers at High School was a lady called Miss Fleming who always encourged me to work harder and to push myself and for that I will always be grateful.

Word skills are a gift learned through a pencil, keyboard, or -- God help the young -- a text at a time.

The study of "English" is academic.

English was easy for me because I'd absorbed it painlessly long before I went to school.

However, I can't imagine how anyone not born to it manages to memorize all the wacky exceptions to its rules.

Since I don't remember taking any English classes (at all), It's been a trial with lots of errors. With regard to the written word, I try to express my thoughts in a natural way and try not to make a fool of myself. I'm not always successful though.

I have a lot of respect for the study of English.

I was never that into languages due to my lack of interest in reading, and lack of patience in writing. However, I don't deny the importance of the subject and everyone should learn to write properly. Of course, like all other skills, learning hard doesn't always guarantee the best outcome, and it doesn't help that the British think everything they do must be correct, and Americans who just don't give a rat ass how they write.

I had the good fortune to have uniformly good teachers in English and English Lit. All of them were dedicated and competent to a large degree, and all of them had a strong respect for the written word, both that of their students and their subjects.

From perusing the internet, it seems to me that if such teachers exist today, they are probably in hiding.

Great subject--it is necessary for life and for jobs. Reading many of the postings on this site, it must have been abolished as a school discipline some time ago in the USA.

My absolute least fave subject, and it is made even worse by the teacher I have this year. They call her Killa Kohn, and I can see why. I am suprised she hasn't killed anybody with her teaching.

UPDATE: Now that I'm in 8th grade, I can give a differnt view of it:
I still hate it!

On another note, grammer has sort of been a strong subject for me. The only problem is I'll literally put words like also, though, and therfore in the wrong place in a sentence, making it come out really weird.

I used to want to be an English major, but lost the passion after several tedious classes and teachers who favored only one or two students and ignored the remaining ones. Oh well. However, I do love grammar.

Nothing (to me) is more important than being understood; don't we all?  I'd also like to understanding someone else by reading what they think and feel. For now, however, I'd just be damn happy if people would show that they were taught how to use an apostrophe to show possession or contraction.

Grammar rules can become tedious, but the greatest English classes are where you can be creative. As someone who's written over 150 short stories, I always enjoy the opportunity to use my imagination!

My biggest issue with English classes are that you have to write papers just for the sake of writing papers. If I have a reason for writing about something, it's not that big of a deal. But if I have to write some random paper, my mind comes to a screaching halt.

I'm German and I'd advocate a thorough instruction in the use of one's native language for every country.

English as first foreign language was one of my favorite subjects from the start. No idea if my English is always correct, but I do more and more of my verbal thinking in it. Somehow my ideas come quicker and are better when I try to conceive them in English.

In a practical sense, I give this subject a 5 (Vital to learn.) If people payed attention in English class, there wouldn't be so much of this shorthand SMS writing, people would spell properly etc. On a personal note, it depends on what teacher you have. Some teachers can make the subject really boring and hard, whilst some make it more enjoyable. With me, I didn't like learning all of these novels, I was more of a short story writer.

I think it's one of those unneccessary classes. Most people that speak bad know how to speak, they just find it easier to speak unproper English. And it's pretty hard for left-brainers. I am not the creative type and have trouble writing. I think they should split the class and have grammer as a core class and writing as a choice class.

For the most part a four. Learning all the grammar part was not always the best but if you include literature with this It brings it up higher. I have always loved to read and English ties in with learning to read. In school in high school Literature classes were one of my favorites. through English and literature, I still read books because I want to.

English was another favorite of mine. The only problem I had was the required reading lists. I hate being told what I have to read, although I did enjoy some of the books I had to read, like "To Kill a Mockingbird" and I never would have picked up those books on my own. I was also pretty decent at writing and grammar.

English was always my best subject for some reason. Not that I really enjoyed it any more than I did other subjects, it was just that it came naturally to me. You may not can tell any of this by reading my reviews, but blame that on my typing skills.
