Why is college Englih so hard?

When I was in high school, English was a breeze. But I feel like it's SO much harder in college. Does anybody else feel this way? Does anybody else have to write 5 papers in one quarter?

I feel like it went from being my favorite/easiest subject to being my least favorite/hardest subject.

5 papers in one quarter? Wow!

It's been a while since I've taken my engish class, but I remember we had 2 or 3 in class essays, and 2 other papers....One an opinion type, the other persuasive. We had other writing activities as well, but they weren't essays. I didn't find the class hard at all, but it depends on the school and the teacher.

Yeah...I wish I had your class. If I could just write 2 papers it would be so much easier. It's so stressful to have to write 5 papers in one quarter. It's like almost a paper every week. I know it's called English Composition but still...

I had an English class my first semester in college that I had to write 5 papers... I think the last one was supposed to be 10 pages... but there were a lot of other crazy requirements in that same class... We had to go to the "Writing Center" for each of our papers, and get a paper signed saying that someone had gone over the paper with us, or a whole letter grade would be knocked off the paper.

I really think it depends on who your teacher is in college. Though I didn't care much for the English Composition class itself, it was much better when I retook it with a different teacher.

I had an English class last semester in college that was much better, it was actually enjoyable to me. It might have had something to do with having a really interesting teacher, but I think even with a different teacher it would have been more enjoyable than the first English class that's required.

5 papers really doesn't sound that bad for an English class (by the way I did lol at the thread title)

Generally your doing a paper per topic or style depending on the type of English class, but that's still only 1 a week and it's not like the class tends to set much other work.

It sounds like your doing English 101 composition. Your teacher just seems crazy, when I took it I had 4 major papers, and some small writing assignments. Compared to high school English I feel that I actually learned something, and my writing skills were improving. Although that just may be because all my high school English teachers were either incompetent to the highest degree or took a very laid back approach.

I don't think I had five papers-well depends on the length of the papers, I just had alot of small 1-2 page assignments/summaries, etc...does your campus have a writing center/lab? Those are usually extremely helpful in helping u write papers!

Because the academic standards within the high school system are an embarrassment.


Five papers in one quarter? Eh... I had to write about six essays in one English class and about ten essays (four were in class) and three to five major papers in another.

Huh. That's the name of my English class too.

Yeah, more to write, but you know what's awesome? Broader essay topics. It helps to relate your topic to something you like. I ended up writing about my favorite movie at one point last term.

Get used to essay writing, english won't be the only subject that requires lots and lots of papers from you

Anyways, I have an english degree. If there's anything I can do to help you out, or if you just want someone to proofread anything, feel free to pm me.
