    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this course because it relates to many of the students' personal experiences. The course is all about Multilingualism in the United States; benefits, disadvantages, cognition, peer reviewed journal articles, and basic neurolinguistics.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights included very little homework, just reading responses due midnight before each class and 2 papers. Professor Higby is very easy going and won't give you a hard time. I missed many classes even though Prof. Hgby takes attendance but it is still my highest grade of the semester. I learned a lot of basic physical impacts of being multilingual. I also learned that many people find being bilingual a disadvantage when that is the farthest thing from the truth! Overall, it was an interesting course and I would love to take it again.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just make sure to submit your reading responses because they make up the bulk of your grade. Don't worry about memorizing all the information because there are no exams.
