    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved the course (although I took it only because it was part of my major) but the teacher made it so much more enjoyable than I thought it would be. Surprisingly, I was the only student that had a major in Linguistics (and there were probably another 20 students in the class), so that was a bit of a shocker. The lectures were a bit long, but it ended a lot faster than one would think because the topics covered in the lectures were very including of a student's attention.

    Course highlights:

    Learning about First Language and Second Language Acquisition was pretty cool (especially since I was enrolled in two foreign language classes). Did you know that an adult that is in the process of acquiring a second language, could never acquire the fluency that a native speaker would have due to this thing called "Critical Age Period"? I swear on my life, I have never felt so sad but academically interested in it, because I want to become a translator, and be fluent in Spanish. I suppose it was a challenge for me, and it's one that I plan to win.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest lots of notes, and also take care to remember the little details. You may think that it's the bulge of the topic that's most important, but trust me, the little details will come back to bite you. Professor Ohara is amazing as well, and such a caring person. She was very supportive of me, and encouraged me to get out of my shell (I'm a quiet and shy person) in order to save points I would've given up if it wouldn't have affected my grade so drastically.
