I know I am educated and that my understanding of material presented in the course work is good, my ability to write about it well is not. However, I am at a unique disadvantage because the majority of the students in the class have been speaking, reading, and writing in English since they first began going to school. College is about learning and I have learned a lot in this course; more than many I would suspect. There are, clearly, people in this class who have attended less lectures turned in less assignments and have overall shown far less interest or participation, but in class may have a higher grade than I do because they were able to write a properly structured English sentence better than I can.
I do not mean to say that this is an excuse, but shouldn’t it be a consideration. According to current research this situation is not uncommon in the United States today. Many students who are ESL learners feel that they are not receiving the grades that they feel they deserve (Solomon 5). In many ways, I have to work a little harder and a little longer than the other students; but I keep trying my hardest to do better the next time. This has been a problem since I began attended English speaking schools. I take many classes with a heavy work load. I do not quit. I do not give up. I put in twice as much effort and never stop trying to improve my writing skills. I think that a grade of “B” fits the effort, energy, and commitment I have shown in this course. My written work may not be the best, but my work ethic and desire to understand the course is deserving of far more than a grade of “D.”
