Kumar, Akash Silver_nugget
[V1101] Elementary Italian I and [V1102] Elementary Italian II

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

Professor Kumar is not a joy to see four days a week. While he is not strict about attendance, his personality makes one not want to come to class.

He is sarcastic and, even though this is an elementary language class, he still feels free to make fun of those still learning the language.

In class, he makes us listen to songs for the hell of it and, come test time, the we all were the ones that had to teach ourselves the material.

Also, he rarely ever returns work and, when he does, there isn't any constructive criticism.

Find someone else if you'd like to learn any Italian during the semester.

Workload:

Lab manual and Work book activities each week, a quiz ever Tuesday, compositions (usually every other week), a midterm, a final, and a presentation.
