Great Intro to the Subject
Many Small Assignments
Pretty easy, overall.
I really enjoyed the subject matter, and the course is good at going through the basics of each of the major subfields of linguistics. It also was not a super demanding class.
The most time was spent of phonology, syntax, and pragmatics. You learn about IPA and you memorize the letters used in English, about one form of doing sentence trees, and how meaning is conveyed in different/similar sentences. You also learn a bit about the brain and language learning as a subject.

Advice for students:
You don't need to buy the workbook or stress over the class; a lot of it is a completion grade.
