Week 9 – Quiz reflection

I felt a little overwhelmed when I read this week’s English for Journalists’ chapter (Hicks 2013, pp. 73-92).

A lot of the mistakes mentioned in the text were ones that I knew I had made myself in the past, particularly those concerning commas.

I was disheartened when I clicked on the button to take the quiz because I was convinced that I would do badly.

Surprisingly though, I got 100% on my first try.

I was pleased with my result as it means that I have been learning from our readings each week and not just letting the information go in one ear and out the other.

This was the second week in a row that I scored 100% on my first quiz attempt.

It left me feeling a lot more confident about my English skills than I had a few weeks ago.
