Summary Response Amadeo Constanzo is the author of “Do You Really Think You Are a Good Writer?” and he believes that if you are in a remedial class English then “instead of wasting time and energy on negative thoughts, use the energy and time to improve your writing” or other skills. Constanzo supports remedial classes because even the best athletes train to be better just like a writer practices to become a better writer. I very much agree with Constanzo because the majors I currently have would eventually deal a lot with presentation documents. I am also in remedial English and I know that it would help me becoming a better writer. Benjamin Franklin once said “If a man empties his purse into his head no one can take it away from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest”. To me this means very specifically that knowledge is the greatest investment one can ingest in because with knowledge one can succeed in what they have as a goal. As Constanzo says in his article “If you are as good a writer as you think you are, you have nothing to lose if you use the time in the remedial class to work to become even better”. When I came to know that I have been asked to take English remedial class, I was a bit mad at first, but then I thought that this class would make me better. I view remedial classes as practice, very much like professional athletes view training, because the best athletes practice to become better. As well, once students complete a degree with finishing the English remedial and begin seeking employment, they will find many companies emphasize good communication skills. So, It doesn’t matter if you know everything or nothing, what matters is that you benefit in every class (even if it’s a remedial). Soon, after my graduation I will be joining my dad’s business. Being eighteen I know that sooner or later I will have to write emails
