    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I'll be honest and say I originally wasn't looking forward to this course. Grammar usage and syntax never really interested me, I thought it was boring. All I wanted to do was read and write, I could care less about how English came to be today. This all changed within the first two weeks of this class. I instantly fell in love. The professor made the subject so incredibly interesting, I never wanted to miss a class.

    Course highlights:

    I hate learning history, but the history of English is a lot more interesting than any other history I've studied. I really got into the history of English, how it's changed over the thousands of years since it began, and how it's used all around the world. I still think about the class to this day, and I'm hoping I'm able to take another linguistics course in the future, fingers crossed with the same professor

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class is probably one of the easiest classes you will ever take. For the first couple of months it's mostly all lectures, but for the rest of the semester, you watch movies, and a lot of them. I love watching movies as much as the next guy, but since I loved this class so much, I personally liked the lectures rather than staying home and watching movies. There aren't a lot of big assignments, just small ones that require watching a movie and answering a couple questions based off it. MON, WED are lecture days, and FRI are basically reviews and a little extra information of those lecture, which will require your participation.
