I really enjoyed this class with Prof. Sultan. I found the deductive reasoning side of linguistics to be really fascinating. I thought a lot of the work felt like solving language problems, which lead to me really enjoying this course. The homework can be difficult. He does grade on accuracy because he wants to make sure that understand the material to the best of your ability. If you get a grade you don't agree with, you can demonstrate your understanding or your dedication to understanding and he might let you have a second chance at whatever assignment it was. I took this class after taking some higher-level linguistics courses so I didn't think it was too hard, but it might be harder for those that have just come from an intro linguistics course.

The Arabic Department here is absolutely fantastic. They explain the language very well. In fact, as a native English speaker, I’ve found it easier to learn Arabic than I’ve found learning Spanish. Take Beginning Arabic, it’s easy and fun!

As a beginner, I felt that this class was very challenging, but Soltan is very accommodating. The class structured around lectures. Assignments include problem sets and a final group presentation. As I took this class for the distribution, his office hours were super helpful
