This class was tough.
As worried as I was about taking a challenging course like Linguistics, Dr. Rudd made the experience great. He is so knowledgeable about what he is talking about, and will help you one on one or in class if you ask for it. He offers extra credit which helps your grade, which all students love. His intelligence and love for teaching really shines, and he will definitely go above and beyond for his students.
It is so interesting to learn and become fluent in the phonetic alphabet. You learn how your mouth creates sounds, and it makes you think about the American language and how complex it really is. You look at other languages as well and compare their sounds to the American. You dissect the learning of sounds from the infant stage all the way to the adult, which we can all relate to. Sounds that you believe you just learned one day actually have reasoning behind them, and it is interesting to see how your language progresses throughout the years.

Advice for students:
Do the extra credit and take advantage of meeting with Dr. Rudd one-on-one for more help if you're confused.
