Don’t lose your momentum: Register for 101 in Summer 1!

Why should you register for summer English?

1) Since you’re taking fewer classes, you can focus on your writing without splitting your focus.  2) The instructor has more time since she has fewer classes too.  3) You won’t forget what you learned over the summer, 4) so the fall English class won’t feel like starting over.  5) The lessons and assignments are condensed for the shorter session.  6) You can improve daily.

Don’t lose your momentum.  Register for an English summer course today.  Summer I begins May 30th.

Save yourself the stress:

  • NO balancing your work and class schedule
  • NO fighting traffic multiple times a week
  • NO rushing through class lectures and assignments

Find Your Way Through English Grammar

English grammar can feel as complex as a maze, but with the right guide, it doesn’t have to feel that way.

Prof. Thurston breaks the sentence down into understandable pieces so that students can see how the parts create a whole–it’s a bit like seeing a maze from above. Students learn how the sentence is put together and therefore where the punctuation goes and why some words can go in different locations with the sentence. It all becomes clear!

Questions? Contact Prof. Steve.Thurston@montgomerycollege.edu

  • ENGL-110, Summer 1.
  • MTWR, 10:30-12:40 for five weeks
  • CRN: 40313
