Vintila, Vlad Silver_nugget
[V1101] Elementary Italian I and [V1102] Elementary Italian II

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Vlad is a decent teacher and does what he has to. The quality of his teaching really depends on his mood. Sometimes he was really good and lively and other times he didn't hide that he hated teaching the class and couldn't wait to get out of there.

He really acts like one of the students, though, by making jokes, dressing like us, and telling us all about where he likes to go dancing. So, he really lost control of the class and there were some sessions when people just acted really loud and crazy.

Workload:

Standard lab work and homework and compositions in Italian. He makes all this noise in the beginning about how he won't accept late work and then he ends up accepting it! Quizzes are pretty easy. Midterm and final were super easy. He is an easy grader too.
