Tutor profile: Arleen A.
Which part of writing do you like the most?
I usually love to write out my thoughts because I can explain them better than when I say it out loud. Therefore, I enjoy writing essays and things of that matter because I get to write down everything I think about it and organize my thoughts in an orderly manner
What is it meant when people talk about literature? Is it just old works of reading?
Literature, contrary to popular belief, is not just old works of reading - it can also be applied to books which came out a few years ago. Literature is imaginative works of writing, usually fictional, although there are also works of literary non-fiction, which use literary techniques to make an argument or provide the account of an event. Literature does not cover just one area of books, it has a great variety.
Why would you be interested in such a generic subject as English?
As "generic" as it sounds, English is actually a very broad subject which holds in it many different aspects including writing, critical analysis, and literature. I enjoy the process of reading a work of literature and being able to analyze it, and then write about it because I can put all my knowledge from different aspects together and create one great result.
