Elements of the curriculum were engaging, even to a person who had never taken a class in linguistics or anthropology. While she was very passionate about her subject, the Professor's lectures were not engaging. 4 papers total, grading was fair but it was difficult to discern her expectations.

This was somehow the easiest yet least enjoyable course I have ever had the misfortune of taking. We had 3 short essays and one 8-10 page final essay the whole semester.

The course was one of the easiest courses I have taken. It was enjoyable, and the teacher was very lenient with assignments and attendance. The topics we discussed could be a little boring at most times, but it was an interesting class overall.
