GERM 111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Hammond is fantastic at relating the material to your life not to mention making it interesting. He takes his time teaching, so you might feel you haven't learned much until you look back and it blows your mind how much you know. His passion for teaching and for German is inspiring. You can ask for help at any time and you will certainly get it

Had him in 111 as well. One of the best, if not the best, professors of all time. Seriously. Will always make time to help a student and is super friendly and easy to talk to. Super fun classroom experience and a great learning environment. Excellent at teaching, uses many different methods, not just the book and powerpoint.

Very helpful, very funny, may offend some ppl with his jokes, but very awesome. He is a very great teacher. The class is very involved and you have to be prepared to be put on the spot.

I did not apply myself this semester, which made the class hard. The guy is unbeatable! He is an excellent teacher. Study a little each day, and he almost gives you the test via study guides. If you are at all interested in German, then take this class and try--you will succeed.

One of the best professors on campus. Eager for student to learn. Makes learning fun. Study! Tests are easy; guides are given. Available to students and easily approachable. If you have an interest in German I recommend this professor. If you do not get an A you either did not try or need to learn another language. No gum!

GREAT TEACHER! If you really try, he will notice and will help you any way that he can. NO CHEWING GUM in class and ATTENDANCE is MANDATORY! Good reasoning behind it... if you miss, you will be lost. He is always in office ready to help during his office hours too. VERY EASY to talk to. FUN CLASS... I LOVED IT!

He is a WONDERFUL teacher! People who say he picks favorites and isn't fair with grading probably just didn't try hard enough. He is friendly and fun, but doesn't let you slack off, which is good! The only homework he really assigned were vocab lists, which was really helpful. He explained things really well and is always willing to help! Super A+!

He is a fantastic teacher! This is my only class this semester that I actively tried not to miss. It is that good. He does not pick favorites at all. I just think some people are sore because they expected to slide through and he would not allow it. Great teacher, great class, ignore the haters.

JAP111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Professor Hammond is one of the best, if not the best, teachers I have ever had. I took two years of Spanish and I know more German in one semester. He goes off on tangents, but I think it makes the class interesting and it's always related to German. He relates to the students easily and is quite entertaining. If you need a foreign language!^

Very hard guy to rate. I don't really see the ex-Marine thing everyone talks about. He's very good at German, and his class will improve one's vocabulary a lot. Still, he does get off-topic quite a lot.... I recommend him highly, though.

Dr. Hammond is GREAT! Most of the people who don't like him probably don't because he doesn't pander to the conservative setting in which he teachers. He's open-minded, quite liberal, and challenges his students to think. No one can blame him if they don't learn the language- you can learn as much as you want IF YOU TRY!

Ok... I am not really fond of the subject but I LOVE him! He is a GREAT professor! He makes the class fun, he likes to joke, doesn't take things to seriously. He is very understanding and really wants to help you out. He is a really understanding guy and really cool! TAKE HIM!!!

Germ111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Best professor I've ever had. He cares about his students if they care about the class, and trying to learn. Informal teacher, great person, answers any and all questions if they are serious. Work load isn't that large. I think previous negative comments were by students that were lazy or rude. Likes to joke, but he's never 'made examples' of NE1.

His personality can be really grating, but he is good at teaching language. He strives to have the students pronounce things correctly. He doesn't act like a "former Marine;" he keeps political opinion mostly to himself.

Hammond is a great teacher. he really wants you to pass ( and yes, go on the german trip) because it is a great opportunity for those who are really interested in German, and because it is CHEAP while we're in school. If you can't come to class, get your material- but he does understand. good guy :)

GER 111, 222 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Hammond is one of the best professors I've ever had. He is helpful and interested in every student (as long as you act like you give a rat's butt about learning). He makes learning the language easier and more accessible by telling stories, planning activities, and teaching all aspects of it (writing, reading, speaking, listening, culture).
