This class was amazing even when it was on zoom. Jilian is the sweetest professor I've had during my time at Columbia. She is extremely patient and so understanding. I went into the class knowing absolutely no Italian and now I feel a lot more comfortable with the language than I ever expected myself to be after only a few months. I would definitely describe this class as an easy A but it's also very fulfilling and you will learn so much from it. All of the assignments were open book due to zoom but I still feel like it would have been very manageable if we were in person. She is such a nice and reasonable grader.
