This course was a true joy to take. Ilaria is by far my favorite professor, and anyone who has ever taken any class from her can no doubt imagine why. The class moves at a fast pace, but, thanks to Ilaria, never feels rushed; it actually feels very chill. Ilaria is extremely adept at explaining new concepts, and will always take time to make sure everyone understands what she is teaching. I hesitate to even use the word "lecture" to describe her explanations of new concepts, as she always did so in such an engaging fashion. Her presentations are interesting, as are the discussions she has us engage in every morning with the person sitting next to us. She is an extremely intelligent and sophisticated person, but also extraordinarily kind; it is always so fun to talk to her outside of class. I look forward to continue learning from her in the fall!

Ilaria is an amazing professor who is very passionate about teaching Italian. She is very enthusiastic. There is daily homework every night but it is graded on completion. Quizzes and exams are relatively easy if you pay attention in class and grading is lenient.

Professor Brancoli-Busdraghi is by far the best teacher I have ever had. She genuinely cares about the content, and is more than happy to help her students review material they might have not fully understood. The course is not hard work, and if you do your homework every night you can easily pass with an A.
