Fabian, Seth
[V1101] Elementary Italian I and [V1102] Elementary Italian II

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

From reading past reviews, I got the impression that Seth was going to be a good, caring professor. Neither of these qualities were true. I found myself often bored in class, and dealing with a teacher who did not seem to care about making class activities interesting, did not have much energy (essential to make learning a new language doable and interesting), and was not timely in returning/grading assignments. A disappointment.

Workload:

Standard for any beginning language class. Weekly quizzes, about 5 compositions, nightly homework, midterm, final.
