The workload can pile up if you don't stay on top of it. But that's to be expected when learning a new language. The key is to stay organized, review consistently, and seek help when needed. The professor is always available for clarification or extra guidance, which greatly enhanced my learning experience.

This class was very rewarding. Walker is an incredibly engaging and knowledgable professor. Expect to spend a significant amount of time on homework and studying each week. You will also have at least a quiz or test each week.

Professor Portice is funny, engaging, knowledgable, and helpful. Portice explains some tricky concepts slowly and well, and he gives lots of examples. In class, our group work gives us the opportunity to practice the material we are learning. I loved him and he knows a lot about Russian linguistics and culture.

This course is taught by Timothy and Kevin. There is homework every day and unit tests once or twice a month but instructors are super accommodating. Professors are both very optimistic and joke around in class. Would 100% take again!

I really love Kevin, even if I was intimidated by him at first. I thought that the first few weeks of class were the most difficult (wrapping my head around cases was particularly challenging), but it got easier! The year also became more enjoyable as I talked to Kevin more and got to know him better. A really interesting person with whom I'm grateful to have taken a class.

Very difficult at first, but teacher is very accommodating and kind. Much work, practicing dialogue, doing homework, drill. Tests are hard at first but you will get the hang of it. Very very fast paced

I really enjoyed Russian 101! The class was very engaging and the professors do a fantastic job. You get out what you put in, however. The work piles up quickly if you don't stay on top, but that is expected with any language course here.
