Fall 2021 - Stefan is an amazing professor and such a wholesome person. I thought I would eventually stop watching lecture since everything was online but I found myself WANTING to go because he made the content interesting and easy to understand. His positive energy was so infectious, even through Zoom. I couldn't help but smile when he would geek out over the content or when the class taught him how to use "yeet" in a sentence. The only downside of this class was the Zoom chat. Students would often ask highly specific questions that had little to no correlation to the content or provide unsolicited facts that always disrupted the flow of the lecture. Like...take that stuff to office hours or go to Google.com. Anyway, the homework and exams were fairly easy and straightforward. The homework was always similar to the examples during lecture and the exams had the same format as the homework. So, if you understand the worksheets that done during lecture you should be totally fine. However, it's very easy to make mistakes since you are often repeating the same process for several questions in a row. I recommend doing the homework then coming back to it after a while to catch any small errors that could get you docked. This is pretty important since homework is weighted so heavily. Overall, I think this class is pretty interesting and not stress-inducing whatsoever. However, if you plan on taking this class as a GE and you don't have any interest in linguistics at all, you may not find it interesting.
