Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Professor Pactat is an incredible teacher. He understands how to get the class to actually learn and comprehend the material rather than recite pointless information. He also knows how to make the class easy at the same time, as long as you put forth the effort. Participation is a huge part of your grade (30%), so do not expect to do well if you don't participate. At the same time, he is understanding of more reserved, less-outspoken students and will take this into account.
The highlights of the course were definitely the professor and the environment he created. He encouraged discussion and interaction over lecture. He required us to use the language daily in the classroom so we can learn to speak it and not just read or write it.
