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.

The previous review doesn't do Vlad justice. He is a fun teacher and a great guy. Since the class is an elementary language he is confined by the syllabus and basically had time to kill in the class so he joked around with the students. I have to agree that he can be kind of moody a lot of times and brings it into the classroom.

Workload:

workbook, language lab (about 1 hour a week, but the answers are in the back of the book, so you don't really have to do most of it if you don't want to), weekly quizzes, midterm, final, 4 compositions with rewrites.
