Latin starts off slow but picks up speed. She expects more as you go on, and it can be very stressful and time-consuming. The answers can be found online, so if you can't do the work, YOU MUST obtain the answers anyway. If you become favored she will cut you a few breaks, but she's reasonable overall. Intimidating - didn't feel I could ask for help

To much reading and wants a journal for every night you read which she goes made hard on grammar and everything. She's a hot mi1f but would recomend the class prob someone easier for literature.

She is a nice, caring lady, but the class isn't particularly easy. There's A LOT of reading (at least 50-100 pgs a night) Don't take her class if you can't show up every day, as the exams are based entirely on what you discuss in class. 10 page final paper. It's an interesting class but a lot of work.

She is so adorable. She is such a sweetheart. I love her. Her accent is a bit hard, but u get used to it. Pretty easy class. I don't really like the subject, but she is just so sweet so i don't mind it.

Accent difficult, but manageable to understand. Grading policy is not clear, neither is what she wants from her students. Grading sometimes seems so random and feedback is not helpful for improvement. Very difficult to please.

not the best class ever, but still profitable if you are willing to do the reading which is heavy. class gets boring sometimes.

I LOVED HER! I learned so much, shes so nice she makes you want to pay attention just to make her happy. She's aware of her bad english and is working on it. Loves her job, wants kids to learn, but isn't out to get anyone.

her accent IS a bit hard to get used to at first---but she tries and makes sure you know what she is saying. She makes you write summaries on lectures which is annoying, but grades them easily. She is really helpful. She wants to make sure you understand all the lectures and will talk to the other prof to let them know where you're having trouble

No opinion matters except for her own. Her accent was tough at first, but never becomes a problem.

I have taken her twice (basically I had no choice), but she is a very good prof. Her accent isnt as bad as a lot of people make it seem. Sometimes you have to ask her to repeat something but she then trys to make sure she doesnt say it wrong again. she is very helpful and i recommend her classes.

Very nice lady, assignments are not unbearable. If you pay attention in her class and take notes you'll do fine. I enjoyed her class and she's definitely not that difficult to understand, especially once you get used to her accent. I recommend taking her.

Prof. Marchesi is a great Latin prof. Hard language to learn, but she simplifies it. Exams are very fair, lots of homework and quizzes. Do the work and you'll get a good grade. Lots of class participation. Friendly, and dresses sooo cool. Great accent! Highly recommend.

Does not give the best preparation for Latin. Her difficulty in the language is well apparent. Has her favorites. Often thinks her way of saying the translation is the only one and only correct one. Take someone else, who is a little less "diva-ish" and opinionated.

Often thinks that her interpretation is better and more important than other peoples'. She assigns simple summaries instead of origional compositions. If you're looking for an easy grade, this is a professor that would give you them, but don't expect to learn much.

Ilaria is awesome. Latin is not easy, but it is worth taking if you hate other languages. She is the most dedicated and helpful teacher on this campus, and has a good sense of humor. She knows latin is tough, but she will always help. Take this class.
