    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Highly recommend, professor is extremely interesting and energetic, and the course material isn't too difficult. Emphasis is heavily on socio linguistics.

    Course highlights:

    This was my first exposure to linguistics, and it was interesting to get to analyze aspects of our everyday speech and how we talk the way we talk.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend lectures, make sure all your homework questions are correct (check with a classmate if you can), discussion sessions are pretty helpful for review

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I gained a broadened perspective on the way language influences and reflects culture and changes in society.

    Course highlights:

    The course is not too rigorous in terms of workload and keeps you interested. I learned how the language you grow up with can influence your views of the world, the dangers of language death (96% of the worlds languages are spoken by just 4% of the population), and how culture affects language.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are interested in the structure of language and sociopolitical factors, definitely take this course.
