    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was a very interesting course that delved into the cultures and societies of China, Japan, Korea, and more. The course had a focus on the languages too, which gives insight into how different these cultures really are.

    Course highlights:

    Going into this class with any kind of expectation might not be the right thing to do. What you learn in this class will shatter some of the stereotypes that most people probably have heard about. Then again, at times, your assumptions about a culture will end up being right. I think that many people thought these nations were very similar as we have a tendency to categorize them into a generic group called "Asian". I learned that they are truly different.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't skip class. At the beginning of the semester, you might think "I can get away with skipping one or two". You definitely can, but you might also miss some important information, dates, and assignments. We had in-class assignments every time we had class, so you can expect to miss those if you miss class. Overall, if you come to class, take notes, and maybe do a little more research out of class, you'll succeed. The teacher matters too in how the experience goes, I think.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This was a very difficult course. I believe it was this teacher's first year teaching. I felt like there was no direction and most students had no idea what she was teaching. It was also very hard to understand her.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that I should use Course Hero's Course Advice from now on before registering for a class. If I would've read this teacher's reviews then I would have saved myself from a lot of stress.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Unless you absolutely love Eastern Languages and Cultures and can understand a very strong accent and an inexperienced teacher then I wouldn't think about considering this course
