Can someone please give me feedback on this-- THANKS!

Every school day for the past four years, the academic class I looked forward to the most was English. I especially enjoyed AP English Composition and Language, which I took in my junior year of high school and through which I read famous works in British literature in addition to preparing for the AP test. The class was stimulating because the essays and writing assignments gave me a chance to express my ideas through words, allowing me to be creative and think outside the box. At the same time, the class was also challenging because the essays were more than just a response to a reading, which were typical of essays in my English classes in previous years. Instead, since the AP English course centered on analysis, I had to first understand the work I was reading and then break it apart to answer a given prompt.

Although the class was tough, I explored various themes and topics of different British literary masterpieces, such as the Warrior Code in Beowulf, that I otherwise would not have been exposed to. The more difficult the story or novel was, the more rewarding it was when I got a good grade on an essay pertaining to that story or novel, and I definitely improved my writing. Whereas in science and math there is only one correct answer, English gives me the opportunity to create, and I am never tired of doing that.

You answer the prompt nicely. Just delete "which I took in my junior year of high school "
