I really enjoyed her as a professor. Class was a little dull at times because the material was so easy, but she was extremely clear and made sure everyone understood everything. The midterm and final were multiple choice, and weekly assignments were pretty easy. I feel like I learned a lot in the class, and it made me really interested in Linguistics. If you're going to take Ling 1, I suggest taking it with Lee!

Forget scand 50. This is by far the easiest class you can take. Literally two weeks worth of material taught during the whole quarter.

Contrary to what a few people have said below, this was a fantastic GE. Sportiche is a nice guy and a funny lecturer. There is one homework packet per week, and if you put in the effort to do it all correctly then you will ace this class. I attended most of the lectures, did some of the reading, studied for the final for an hour or so the night before, and got an easy A. The class was interesting and I feel that I have a pretty good understanding of elementary linguistics now. If you try, you'll do fine!

I wouldn't take this as an online SUMMER class. Since the videos are edited, he can fit in so much information into one video.
My friend who took this in class in Spring 2019 showed me the work he had to do. Come to find, the 6 week summer course and 10 week regular course have the exact same content. So they shoved 10 weeks of stuff into 6. It can be demanding (4-8 videos a week, each over 1 hour) but if you're good with your time, you can do it. I was taking another class along side this one and found problems juggling it all.
Online summer class has a final paper, final exam (cumulative), discussion sessions and homework. The class can be difficult in certain sections and it's hard to ask questions in discussion since it's online. There will be hundreds online at the same time with like 80 questions and they only have their allotted time to answer while also covering the lectures. I'm sure this class is fine in person. Professor Torrence is very charming and engaging. But as an online class, it can be just too much at times. Plus you have to pay to take the test online or go in person, which isn't ideal as a Summer course since many students are away and don't have $40 to dish out on a final. Overall not bad, would take it again but not over the summer.

Fabulous professor. Time is a little rough sometimes. Luckily, the professor is extremely knowledgable. Very respectful to students and a great person overall.
