[ITAL W1101] Elementary Italian I

[ITAL W1101] Elementary Italian I

Alessandra is a terrific professor. She's from Italy and has a great accent. All of her instructions (including the entire textbook) are in Italian, which is a little confusing but does help teach the language. She's outrageously sweet and gets to know her students almost immediately. I would absolutely recommend Alessandra, especially for people just starting out in Italian. She'll regularly have students listen to music during class, or learn about Italian art or food. It's one of the classes where you get out what you put in, because she's a very lax grader. My only complaint is that she struggles to articulate grammar rules in an accessible way because her Italian is so much better than her English, though she manages to get the point across.

Workload:

Daily assignments from the textbook, which she'll rarely check, and all of which can be done quickly. Occasional (maybe 3) compositions of around 100 words. One oral presentation, 4 quizzes, a midterm, and a final, all of which are graded VERY forgivingly. She'll cover your paper in corrections and still give you a 95.
