Best professor I've had, hands down! Not only is she a great professor, but a wonderful person as well! She was beyond helpful! Willing to meet with students whenever needed on her own time which was nice of her to do. The material was at times difficult but she grades fairly easily. Go to class, participate, and do your homework and you'll pass.

Interesting lady. Awesome sense of humor. Her class is very hard sometimes, but she is dedicated and willing to help students whenever they are motivated enough to meet her during office hours. And she's quite flexible about those too.

Her class is ridiculously hard. She does have a good sense of humor though. A lot more tests and quizzes than I like to be involved with.

She is a great teacher. As long as you show up, do your homework, and try to participate, you should be fine. She does assign quite a bit of homework some nights, though.

She is an amazing professor! She's funny and works well with all skill levels. You do a lot of work, and it can be challenging if you don't a background with it (I had 3 years). She's awesome I would def recommend her.

Dr. Manis has been my favorite professor so far! She has a great sense of humor and has great grading. You will use the book a lot. The class goes fast and obviously requires much memorization. I had never taken German before and received an A in Basic German I and II. Notecards are your friends!

She is a FANTASTIC teacher, I was forced into this class with NO prior German experience, and she was the most helpful teacher I ever had in all five years at Western. She actually cares about helping the students!!! There is a lot of class work and try not to miss class a lot cause she takes attendance and goes through a lot in every class.

Very good professor. Helped out with questions, and was interested in helping the students - not just getting a paycheck.

I just loved this prof!! She is so wonderful, and makes class so enjoyable. I learned soooo much in her class and my German really improved!! Assignments are easy enough, and varied so they don't get old. She is very, very fair and helpful!
