Teacher was doing great job, and very good personality! Materials they provide are also very helpful. It was a fun class, but administrative side was not that great, that’s why just 3 stars.

1. The schedule was changed and the class continued 2 weeks after 3/7. One week was a snow day and the other was valentines day, which was on the original schedule. 2. While the instructor was a skilled linguist, he was a poor educator.

Italian 1: Beginner

I honestly just wanted to learn about the language as much as possible as I spend 4-6 weeks a year in Italy and I felt we didn't spend enough time in that department. Discussing the Italian hip hop scene was interesting, along with some of the current events, but I felt we spent way too much time on that as my expectation was we would be learning the language. Overall, I'm somewhat disappointed as I wanted to come away with more language and I feel I learned very little.

I will say this is a good value for what you pay. The course is intense and ambitious regatding the amount of things it tries to cover. There are too many things that the teacher tries to touch in each of the lessons (grammar, vocabulary, expressions, etc.), that actually is easy to get lost in between what you should focus. It is also a pitty that the level of French knowledge of the students varies a lot and hence it impacts the dynamics of the class.
