Compared to our first day of class, I feel good about Nicole’s academic writing for some reasons. First, you check our RP step by step. That helped us a lot because we could correct our mistakes in each section and learn how to organize and how to use in-text citation again and again. Secondly, you also taught us how to translate Japanese to English. It was very useful for us because there are few classes in this university in which we can learn about translation. In fact, I want to be a translator in the future, so I could get a lot of information in your class.

When this course started, I feel uneasiness. Many people say that Academic Writing is much more difficult than IE writing. But, you are very kind and teach us carefully. I really appreciate you to have checked my paper every week. Thanks for this, I finish my paper without letting my work pile up. Now, I can enjoy Academic Writing course. Though homeworks were surely hard for me to do, but really valuable. I can understand how important to do things step by step through this class.

I heard this course was much difficult than IE, and in my IE course, I sometimes could not keep up with it, so when this course began, I thought I would fail this course . However, in class, you taught me many things, for example, how to quote and how to organize the research paper persevering. Moreover, you answer my questions in email. These your kindness always helped me when I wrote my research paper, and now, I feel not fear but a little interesting in this course and enjoy this course.

After finishing IE core, I felt that I should learn about MLA style to develop my academic writing skill. Therefore I am glad that I have that chance in this class. I feel more confident with it than the first day of class. 1500 words seemed a lot but now I have written more than 1800! 1500 seems even too little for me. It is easy when the topic is what I really like. Because it is about the Beatles, I did not get bored. I enjoyed writing it even though it was one of the toughest works in this semester. Especially, writing conclusion was hard for me.

Since I heard academic writing class is so difficult, I was nervous and worried about this class on my first day. However, Nicole is kind and teaches easily to understand. Therefore, the homeworks were a little bit hard for me but I could enjoy this class and improve my English skill. I am not good at writing something so a 1500-word research paper was hard and I am not quite satisfied with my research paper. I wanted to write more informations in it. However, thanks to Nicole, I learned the best way to write research paper, I will be able to write better research paper next time.

When I compared to the first day, I have less worries and feel less nervous. Because I heard Academic Writing is much more difficult than IE3 writing from its teacher, I felt very fear. Then, after this class started and I learned about how to write, my feeling about Academic Writing went okay. Of course writing is very difficult, but I had positive attitude toward it day by day. I feel more confident than my first day of this class.

Before I took this class, I didn't know how to write a specific essay well because I didn't understand MLA style, in-text citation, and other specific writing ways. Of course, previous IE writing classes taught us how to write, but it was not enough and I wanted to learn in datail. So during this class I'm so glad to be taught a lot of specific knowledges. You taught us step by step, so I could undestand all of them easily and completely. Compared with myself before this class, I came not to be afraid of writing such a long essay and had confident to writing and researching.

My IE3 teacher often told us how hard this course is, so I had thought that it would be troublesome in academic writing. However, the style that Nicole taught us is clear enough and the tasks are not so difficult, so my image against academic writing course became better. After my writing a research paper, I did not think it was really hard. It's because Nicole gave us a task little by little. I learned how to write in funnel oranization in this research paper. Also, other teachers had never taught tranlations, but Nicole taught us. She can stand by both sides, so I think that is great.

I believe my skills in academic writing are much better than the firtst day now.

At first, I wondered if I can complete my AW paper because I'd heard that AW is comparatively difficult. As I thought before beginning AW class, it was difficult to do for me. And even now, I feel so. But, this class is very useful and worthwhile in the same time. Through some advices from AW's teacher, we can find so many valuable things for our English skills. Now, I've done my 1st draft. It was so tough for me but also a little bit fun. But once I start to write, 400 words is too little to write each body paragraph deeply. I sometimes shortened it unwillingly. Finally, I found it is enjoyable to write the paper or examine about my topic sentences. I experienced a precious time.

When i took this course, I didn't have confidence to write research paper in English. Finishing research paper seems so hard for me. Now I feel that it is less hard than i thought. Because teacher taught how to write research paper closely. Moreover, teacher imposed task on us step by step,so it is not so hard work. Teacher's help is big factor to feel that it's not so
