Professor Miozzo comes off a nice guy, and he is. Unfortunately, this class was one of the most boring I have ever taken. I had a lot of trouble waking up in the morning just so I could go to class and listen to his incomprehensible English. If I didn't know any better, judging from the slides he used I would think the class was taught in Italian. TA sessions proved the most helpful for me and I think everyone else in my class. Miozzo would just sort of whiz through the material and expect us to gather all the intricate details from the absolutely awful text that he uses. In short, if you want a linguistics-oriented Psych class that's in-depth and entertaining, pass on this one. Krauss' Human Communication is very similar, and much better.
