This class is not as hard as some are making it out to be. Honestly, if you gave half of the effort as you have to with most other classes, I think you'd at least make a B. Study the videos online. Also, some of the tests Jilly gives a study guide for, which is identical to the actual test. She is hilarious. Wish she taught the intermediate courses

This is the first class I have ever taken and did not learn a single thing. Her favoritism is horrible and she treats people with less knowledge as second rate. The scan tron test and online tests took weeks for her to return. I would never consider taking her again.

Jilly is an awesome professor compared to Franky. She simply made the class more enjoyable and her signing was much easier to understand as well

Jilly is a professor who plays favorites, will undermine you, is very strict about her syllabus, and won't hesitate to dock points for stupid stuff (like forgetting you are hearing and accidentally mouthing something or NOT BEING HER FAVORITE).Favoritism is important to her so unless you have Chapstick ready don't take this class.

Jilly is an amazing teacher. Although she is deaf, she teaches ASL with a vey helpful attitude. She encourages you to try and is always available to help you.

Jilly is Deaf, so the learning is a bit strained. That being said, there is a disconnect between what you learn in 1410, 1420 and what you learn in 2310 and 2314. You will learn or you will not pass.

Jilly is a great teacher!! Everyone in our class is making decent grades (only had one drop, she was clueless in general). Her being deaf can be challenging but you learn A TON. She is very helpful and responds to emails.

Jilly is super sweet. She is deaf so it does make it a little bit difficult, but if you go up and write down a question after class, or on the board during class she always answers and explains herself. I enjoy her class!! She'll write the answer on the board if she has to, to make it clear.

This class was very hard. There was never any homework assignments to help you understand. She goes really fast and you can barely see the board she teaches on. Use the tutor as much as possible. She is the only asl teacher for the first and second levels so you will have her for a while. Learning asl was exciting but her teaching style is horrible

Jilly is deaf, so you cant ask questions. Does not return emails. Most students dropped. She gives grades, without any explanation or guide. Very frustrating class. Lazy teaching methods. She is the only ASL instructor, so you don't have a choice. The tutor was very helpful, he will help you pass and enjoy learning. Take for credit,not to know ASL
