    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class as a whole furthered my language speaking abilities along with teaching more grammar. Not only was this a completely language oriented class, it also taught about the culture in many Italian regions.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was definitely the professor and students in the class. There were 4 students including me and the professor, Ms. Filosa, was excellent. She went above and beyond what we were supposed to master in the curriculum and helped us with pronunciation, grammar, and deeper understanding of the Italian culture.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say that studying a little every single day is always a way to prove mastery and be fully prepared for tests. The presentations and speaking come naturally to some and not so much with others. I would recommend speaking in Italian outside of class as frequently as possible.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    -the professor did not seem to like the students, had a very hipster vibe and made it known -unclear what is needed to know for the tests -fun class, as are most language classes when it comes to the people

    Course highlights:

    -learn about the different cultures in different parts of Italy, but only covers broad topics, so the tests can be annoyingly hard -covers the same grammar topics as elementary Italian classes, not much of a difference, but is expected to always speak in Italian

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    -pay attention in class -don't use google translate for everything -participation does not matter, usually the class is a good enough size where you won't have to unless you want too
