I'm writing this on Tognozzi's profile since her name was on the study list for Italian 1, but Adele Sanna was the sole instructor for my class. I am absolutely brand new to Italian, so an A is definitely possible for anyone really. The class itself was super engaging. Participation is key (it's worth 15% of your total grade). Examinations count for about 50% of your grade, and the rest of your grade is determined by group presentations, an oral exam, and writing compositions (super easy). Sanna really was a great professor that eased the whole class into the complex world of the Italian language. In fact, I signed up for this class 2 weeks late and managed to catch up by Week 3 thanks to Sanna's help. Workload is super light (maybe like 5-10 minutes per day), and the exams are very manageable. Not much to say other than Sanna is a great professor and the class is very manageable as long as you can commit an hour a week outside of class.

Having no background in Italian, I struggled in this class all quarter. Every class is taught in strictly Italian and at a very fast pace – which is understandable since there's so much to cover in so little time! Professor Truong does a great job of engaging her students with the material while teaching, making learning a new language slightly more enjoyable. She is very helpful and genuinely cares about her students. She goes out of her way to make sure that all of her students are doing well and offers advice/tips throughout the quarter that can boost your grade. & Although the amount of work she assigns for this class is a lot, she forces you to actually practice and learn the material which is something I appreciated.
