Paul Wimmer

Jan 2013

Class would generally go by pretty quickly, we would spend time either reviewing/reading the textbook material (he would then give examples on the board, or clarify something the book said), or talking about the reading that was assigned (short stories, 2-5 pages). Class seemed to be more of an overview of the material and it was up to you to read the textbook and memorize vocab/grammar, etc. We got worksheets/notes for whatever topic we were studying, they were pretty useful for practice, but there was never an answer key to compare against. Exams are straightforward. You either know it or you don't. Grading was lenient, which I think the whole class appreciated. Paul is really friendly and is open to questions through e-mail, office hours, or appts. I'd take another class with him if the opportunity arose.
