Great professor. Even for an intro class she does not allow the use of English, but it comes easy with her guidance. She is not an easy A, but it isn't hard to get one either. Also, she is the head of ital department, so she must be doing something right, huh?

Lorraine is an excellent teacher. She spoke Italian on a level that everyone was able to completely understand. Always willing to meet with you outside of class. Incredibly organized - gives you a schedule every month outlining the assignments and material. Definitely one of the best at Pitt.

I had her for both Italian III & IV, and I can tell you that she is the most knowledgeable professor I've had for Italian. She's also really witty, loves The Office, and can speak Italian like a native Italian. You won't regret having her.

Lorraine, if you're reading this: ALL OF THE READINGS YOU CHOOSE ARE BORING BORING BORING. But you're still a great professor.

Very sweet and often cracks cute little jokes. Very helpful and accessible, and very accommodating. Really generous grader, and rarely gives quizzes/tests. Also, if you do the homework and participate, you're almost bound to get an A.

If every class had a teacher this great, I would have learned a hell of a lot more here at Pitt! This school will be losing one of their most valuable assets when she moves to Italy :( Funnest class ever!
