Great class!Accent was scary at first,but Dr.Barua made it interesting and was a motivating teacher.Already a capable writer,he pushed me to excel passed my comfort area. The topics were enlightened and he kept it social, fun, and light. If you put effort into your essays and participate in class(even if you answer wrong)he will appreciate it.

Wonderful teacher. Very knowlegeable. Fair grader. attendance and participation are very important. Essays mostly 1000 words length, except the final research paper, usually about any Shakespeare's play in 1500 words length. Higly recommended!!

Dr Barua speaks very slowly and at times it felt like the class drags on. But he's brilliant so it was a worthwhile class. We wrote 5 essays at home, there were 2 in class and 1 research paper. A couple of quizzes. Nothing too challenging.

This is my second semester taking an English class with Dr. Barua as the instructor. I find the lectures stimulating, topics interesting, and I receive helpful feedback on my essays. I don't know if you would could consider the class "easy" but I would recommend it to any student serious about writing.

He is a fair professor; I have had him twice and I have learned that he feeds off the energy of the class. He knows his stuff and is very helpful if you seek his help with something. Great class.

Nice guy. Lectures and discussions are fun and entertaining. He really is lax on the work, you can turn it in super late and he's ok with it long as you ask nicely. Also is willing to offer loads of extra credit if you're failing.

The class is structured in a simple way, grade is based on take home essays, a couple in class essays, a research paper, peer editing groups, and a couple quizzes. He also counts participation as a large part of your grade. If you miss more than three classes he will drop you. As an instructor he is decent. I would recommend.

He's nice and answers questions. Get to know him and show him you care about the class and he'll help you. Agrees to read and edit your papers if you ask. Simple monotonous class. Not hard to get A, just don't BS your essays

Grades based on his imagination, loses his train of thought constantly, and is quite grouchy most days. Class is "easy" but you do a lot of useless bs readings and pointless busy work. wouldnt recommend

Humble, soft-spoken, nice, and provides clear, great lectures! There are 4 essays (3 pages each), 8 reading quizzes, midterm, and final. The class is slow-paced and chill, definitely interesting and enjoyable! He grades quite easy!

Had him over summer. 6 week course was very intense. You have an essay due every week, and you also have a reading due every class. 4 out of class essays 1000 words each, one research paper 1500 words, and 2 in class essays. Overall material was easy to understand, he is kinda confusing.

I'm currently taking him for summer, and there is a lot of work within 6 weeks. There is an essay due every week, and assigned reading every day. Overall, I found the class was pretty interesting and enjoyable. Highly recommended!(:

He's great, has compassion truly cares about the students,he love to teach and you'll in turn love the subject because of that. He creates a very friendly, safe, encouraging environment to learn. He's very helpful and knowledgeable I have two classes with him and regret that I couldn't take more because I'm transferring soon.

Had him for Critical Thinking in the fall of 2011. He's brilliant! His lectures are highly comprehensive and he makes sense of what he's teaching you. Go to class, it's the key to passing the class. Don't skip any readings; you discuss them during the next lecture. Take him, he's the only knowledgeable one in the ENGLISH department on campus.

Took his summer freshmen comp class, I gotta say it was pretty intense for a 6 weeks class. We had an essay every week and have some readings for homework. Overall is it not that bad if you keep up with the work. Dr. Barua is an intelligent professor and you can learn a lot from him. PS. he always let us out early!

Use of textbooks is key to passing, so be sure to complete readings as scheduled on the syllabus, don't wait until the last minute. It's frustrating not being able to express your own opinion, you pretty much get his interpretations only. Overall a good class, I enjoyed it with lots of laughs.

OMG ... he is so funny once you get to know him. If you go to class and do the work he is pretty easy. In lecture he will say things like, "I don't know why I am talking about this." He grades essay's hard so double check everything. Other then that he is super chill.

Really liked this class! He is a bit monotone, but in a funny way. I recall times where he made fun of poor essays jokingly. I had an easy time in the class, but a few other classmates that were inconsistent with attendance seemed to have trouble

I took Professor Barua for both English 81 and English 110 and enjoyed his teachings in both classes. Yes, he has a somewhat quiet voice. However, he is still audible. When the class participates, the lectures are quite fun and enjoyable. Grades fair. He always has helpful input for any of your essays or short stories.
