I like English because I enjoy writing stories. I like the creative freedom that English allows. I also like looking more into books in terms of characters, and reading between the lines to find out what emotions they are feeling. I also enjoy the class discussions we have about the book we are reading, and the storyline.


English & Drama Photos

I love English because we read and learn about different novels, and we learn how to write creative stories. I love working with others in groups, and the drama role plays!
