Noe, Daniela Silver_nugget
Advanced Italian

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

Daniela Noe is an amazing teacher and a wonderful woman. She is always smiling and takes the time to get to know all of her students. The class material is pretty interesting -- mostly films and short stories, with a few grammar units -- and the workload is fairly light. There is some grammar work and about 10 short essays throughout the semester. Even though the classes can be a bit boring sometimes (when we review grammar), Daniela does her best to make class time useful and fun. She is very flexible and simply wants her students to enjoy Italian language and culture. She may seem disorganized or frantic at times, but is just part of her Bolognese charm. She is amazing -- take her class if at all possible.
