A class that teaches students about the English language. During the early years, English is a very useful, important, and most of all fun class. By middle school, however, English class becomes a redundant class where students are taught the exact same things (basic grammar and punctuation, paragraph structuring, etc) over and over again. By high school, the fun and useful class has been completely replaced by an idiotic course where too much emphasis is placed on over-analysis and essay writing (where the teacher usually tells the students to write a five page essay that could be easily done in three), and less emphasis on creativity. High school English is the period where many idiots get the impression that Shakespeare is the only playwright to exist in EVER and that no significant literature has been published since the late Victorian era.
An average English class:
English teacher: Today kids, we're going to go over basic grammar and punctuation for the five billionth time right before I start fellating Shakespeare!
