I really enjoyed this class. We covered the Vietnam War in literature. I learned so much from him. He's pretty up there, so I highly advise you take his course before he's gone. It's well worth it!

Professor Esperian is an excellent teacher. He grades hard, but if you listen you will learn. He tends to dwell on political rhetoric more than necessary, and he encourages verbal bashing of elected officials, but he is great at helping you improve your writing. I am conservative, and he is liberal, but he allowed opposing views.

Professor Esperian is one of my favorite professors. I took his class in ENG 101, as well. He always has entertaining stories and videos for the class. He is extremely helpful and encouraging. I greatly admire him, I wish he taught more classes. You will definitely be a better writer after a semester with him.

ENG223 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Took Eng Lit 223 and the topic was Vietnam. I wasnt too psyched about the topic but it was the only class available. Luckily i enjoyed his class, was a fair teacher and i learned alot about the Vietnam war. He constantly has you get new books so my advice is to check the public library first before you keep buying books i found most of them there.

Very entertaining teacher. Many cheesey jokes, but he makes the class interesting. I usually hate English, but he made me want to go to class. Just talk a lot, have an opinion, and disagree with him and he'll like you. I'll be taking his 102 next semester

He's a liberal, but other than that he's a great teacher. The class consists of one research paper and A LOT OF READING. The reading material he picks out though is pretty enjoyable. He's a pretty easy going guy but, he will not accept late work under any circumstance so don't be sick. I would highly recommend that you take his class.

Loved this professor. There was just 5 short essays, an easy vocab quiz, and a final. The class was simple as long as you listen/participate in the class discussions. He is one of the best professors!

Prof. Esperian is a great professor for English 101. He grades essays very tough, but he also provides A LOT of help during class on how to improve your writing skills. We wrote and essay every week or two, and most class periods he would assign a reading from the book and have a short, easy quiz on it.

Awesome guy. Just show up to class, and be ready to learn. The papers he gives are relatively easy, and if you do the readings (which are not that much) you should get a good grade. A 5 page research paper is due at the end of the semester.

He can be very unclear on what he wants from his students assignment-wise. He's also a nitpicker on papers, but it's better than getting an A and learning nothing at all. It's for your own good to know your mistakes. Skip the class if you're one of those people who wants an easy A while learning nothing useful.

He is a man who is very hard to please but you know when he gives a compliment, it is sincere. I learned a great deal from him and would take him again. He was am excellent professor who demands the best out of his students which is appreciated.
