Pretty easy, overall.
I'm a linguistics nerd so I liked the actual material of the course. However, lectures didn't always seem worth going to; you normally shouldn't skip class especially since you're paying for school now, but it wouldn't hurt if you did miss this lecture a few times. The really important thing is to buy the book with all the slides and go over the material yourself, if you do happen to miss class. Also, go to discussion because that's where you learn/go over stuff from lecture. There wasn't really any homework, just weekly quizzes in discussion section. The midterm and final exams are also fairly easy, as long as you study a bit. Overall, it's a good, somewhat easy course for anyone who likes languages as much as I do.
This course taught me quite a bit about language and syntax and all this other stuff relating to linguistics, which I appreciated since I'm currently undecided and was thinking about majoring in linguistics (yeah, I don't know any other linguistics majors either).

Advice for students:
Go to discussion and study for the quizzes/exams. If you need extra credit, there's a paper that you can write about a foreign language that should help boost your grade.
