Pretty easy, overall.
Great course, German is a wonderful language. The grammar concepts are tough but in GER 101 nothing is too challenging. Stay on top of vocab and basic concepts, and it is super easy to succeed. There is nightly homework online, but it isn't hard.
I learned all of the basic German concepts, and more importantly I learned what to expect in my future German courses. If you want to get an intro to the German language, this is the only course to take.

Advice for students:
Just do the homework and pay basic levels of attention. It really isn't very hard.
