Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course gave a broad overview of the study of linguistics--both in technical terms and how linguistics practically affects societies. It was truly fascinating and helped me understand and appreciate language more.
One of the highlights of the course for me was learning of my own biases regarding grammar and how I had suppressed my own accent for fear of sounding "stupid". I learned that grammar is not an indicator of intelligence, but rather class and education levels.
