Mackenzie, Lynn
[V1101] Elementary Italian I and [V1102] Elementary Italian II

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

If you don't get Lynn for either Italian I or II then your education has been a waste of time. Easily one of the most energetic-in-a-non-make-you-want-to-throw-up-way teachers that I've had thus far at Columbia. Plus Italian is basically Spanish which is basically English. Definitely one of your easier options.

Workload:

Low-Medium. Workbook/Lab Book assignments that have an answer key if you really and truly feel like you can't get through their easiness. She also assigns 200-300 word blurbs occasionally which you can make up points on by correcting. Weekly quizzes, midterm, final but *If you have ANY questions...go up and "ask"* No problem.
