Bhattacharjya, Dwijen Silver_nugget
[BENG W1101] Elementary Bengali I

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

Bhattacharjya is a great person. The pace of the class varies tremendously depending on the skill level of the students in it, and as another reviewer said--without background in Bengali, it will be really hard to follow even at Intro I. While his grading system is sometimes confusing, he is such a nice person that he never wants his students to ultimately do badly. He is willing to help you find a tutor, provide you additional extra credit work. He is also a great source for information on South Asian politics and culture. The class is always fun, and you never doubt that Bhattacharjya really cares about his students and wants themto do well.
