    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a requirement for our major, and it is a very interesting course, however, the professor teaching this course causes the class to be less intresestig. This was my first time taking a language course in college and we had very long exams, no multiple choice, and one of the worst parts was we never had homework that was interactive. She only told us to read the chapter, in which most students didn't, therefore when it came time for the exam no one was truly prepared.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed all the new things you learn about the English language. Its very interesting because we took a look at how people begin to talk as infants and how sometimes different cultural backgrounds can effect the way we learn a language. I really liked how this course gives you more knowledge on even the smallest things you wouldn't know existed about English.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would mainly tell students to read as much as possible or find various ways to study the chapters because the exams are difficult and contain lots of material from the chapters and even some material from the lectures, which sometimes are lectures aren't very clear.
