There are only ~2 hours of lectures to watch per week at your own pace, along with one mandatory discussion. If you actually watch the lecture videos (which you should anyways), 75% percent of the quiz answers are given almost word for word, with only 2 or 3 questions requiring independent analysis.
Essays are extremely basic questions(again if you watched the lectures), 300 words total. These took probably 30 minutes a week. 3/10 quiz grades are dropped. 2/10 essay grades are dropped. 2/10 discussion attendances are dropped. With this lenient of a grading system, I'm not quite sure what the other reviewers are complaining about

He is pretty boring but bearable if you try. His midterm and final were multiple choice and the essay was pretty easy. Weekly hw can take 10 minutes to an hour to do. You must READ THE BOOK if you want to do well on the hw. Overall, it's not that bad and if you take it, you should survive.

Taken in Winter 2015

The class was interesting, and it really wasn't difficult. We had quizzes every 2 weeks, but those were just 3 short answer questions that you should be able to answer if you do the readings, and homework due every week. The Midterm and Final involved more application than regurgitation, so you should make sure you understand the concepts. She's very approachable and you should absolutely consult her if you have any questions about the class. Our class was pretty small, so she also really made an effort to remember all our names as quickly as possible, which was really cool too.

Overall, the class was fun, and the exams and tests very fair. I had a great time in this class with this professor, who's super sweet and friendly, and can joke around with the class as well. I'd absolutely recommend taking this class with her! It wasn't too hard for a GE, and it was pretty interesting.

Tons of homework in which they took your points off simply based on something minor and irrelevant. The midterm questions were poorly written and structured. Ling1 taught by this professor is by far the worst ling class I've taken. The other ling uppers are way better than this. However, the final was pretty easy.
