For the first time I feel I am seeing your actual language skill level, Bita, and it’s not strong enough to pass a Comp II course. The fault is not yours, of course. You’re still learning to communicate in a new language. But the solution to that problem is not to pass you along as if you had achieved college-level English. Take advantage of the college’s resources to help you achieve English literacy before giving this class another try.
