Pretty easy, overall.
This course was fascinating and opened up the world of linguistics for me. The material was generally simple and accessible, yet it engaged me and got me thinking more analytically.
I learned the basics of the International Phonetic Alphabet and how to use it. I learned about language acquisition, morphology, phonology, syntax, and semantics. I also learned about language disorders.

Advice for students:
When learning IPA transcriptions: forget what you know about English orthography. Think instead about the sounds of words.
