undifferentiated unit, rather than as something with discrete subsets.

Reflection
This class has been very intense; lots of reading and writing. Just the way I like them. We’ve
been going over everything, from type of sentences, to subject and predicate, from types of verb
to descriptive and prescriptive grammar. Learning is easy with the right topic.
Every activity during class was excellent and helped me enrich my writing and speaking
techniques, both as an apprentice, and as future teacher. Often the system leaves us with gaps.
They are classes how are you that fill those white. The rest is practice. Well as you said: practice
makes perfect
