LING454 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great prof. Did more activities than lecture, but it really helps you get to know the methods. He specializes in Asian languages, so lots of Chinese and Japanese examples. Used the textbook almost exclusively. Tests very similar to the homework and in-class exercises. Know your phonology before this class, cause he wont spend much time reviewing it

Very clear during lectures. The discussions were always interesting and he is willing to answer all our questions. He loves teaching the class and talking about the Asian language. He knows so much and very willing to share his experiences with his students. I will take his class again if he offers!

LING454 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Very challenging class, but worth it. Prof gives tons of work. It isn't easy but it will prepare you well for the (really challenging) exams. He's attentive and very helpful if you have questions. Can get snarky at times, but he's usually kind. Follow his directions precisely and you'll be fine.

LING400 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Awesome professor! Very clear about what is required of you in the class. If you attend class and do what you are told to do (except for some reading), then you will do well in the class. I didn't do most of the reading and got an A+ in the class.

Really good at teaching linguistics. Very clear style, and pretty willing to have an honest conversation about the subject. The amount of work as well as the deadlines given are all fairly reasonable. Great instructor, who actually made class worthwhile!
