This course assigned dense textbook readings every week that were difficult to push through. I felt like there was not much point in the dull 3-hour-long lectures per week after dragging myself through the readings and online discussion boards. Most of the teaching had been done by the textbook and the prof does not really go over the content in detail during lectures. He is a very kind person who is eager to help students outside of class through zoom upon request, but personally I do not regard his in-class teaching to be effective.

Mr White made it clear throughout the semester that Introductory Linguistics was designed to be a chill course that would still teach all the fundamentals of Linguistics. I learned a great deal and this was my easiest course.

This is a seminar class, taking place for about three hours on Monday afternoons. Unfortunately, it can be very difficult to stay attentive for that long of a period. Each week we are assigned to read a chapter from the textbook, to which we are asked to either pose a question or answer two of our peer's questions on a weekly discussion board. These are then discussed in class. The classes generally have the same format of a presentation with a few tasks throughout, but at times the slow pace can feel a little bit disengaging.
