Introduction to Study of Spanish Grammar: Phonology and Morphology
Fall 2018 - Professor Ji Young Kim is the best professor I’ve had at UCLA thus far! She is super kind and helpful and is always open to answering questions. The homework is just like the exams so they are super fair! She also gives an opportunity for extra credit at the end of each exam. I got a A- in the class and could have definitely gotten a higher grade but I procrastinated on the hw. Attendance is important to not fall behind. The final group project is open ended so we got to choose our topic of choice to research upon. She gives a lot of time for it so it’s not anything to stress about too much. I also took her for SPAN 100B and the class is structured very similarly. Only main difference is that the final project for this class is individual. Overall, 10/10 would recommend. Looking forward to taking another class taught by her!
Prof. Parodi seems really sweet and cool, but let's be honest, linguistics is just boring. I studied a LOT for this class and worked really hard on the final project but only managed a B+. The amount of memorization necessary for this class rivals the trigonometry department down on south campus, and she is totally unforgiving for minor mistakes on the tests.
