Ms. Rechtman is a very nice woman who should not be a teacher. She came to class unprepared, and she was not good at explaining grammatical concepts. That said, she's very friendly and she means well. Also, the class is pretty easy compared to other sections of this level - I never spent more than an hour preparing for class other than when I Was studying for the quizes (3 a semester) , midterm, and final (which weren't all that hard either). She also lets you retake quizes if you do badly. But be warned, class time is really boring. Yes, this is partly because of the material of the class itself, since it covers a lot of grammer, but she doesn't do enough to liven it up.
