I would say that this class is a great class for laying a foundation for your future linguistics learning. I admit that Hayes' class is extremely demanding, and sometimes it does take a lot of time to finish the homework and stuff, but I think he is really good at lecturing. I seriously don't understand why people would say that his class is not organized, I strongly argue that it is not true. It is hard, yes, but if you do the reading and do the exercises in the reading, the lecture really is easy peasy(btw I love the textbook he wrote).
The lectures are really great, but I would say that Hayes is not really helpful if you ask him questions in person. I feel like sometimes he doesn't really understand what the students want to ask. I asked him if he could talk about the homework a little bit in class because it was extremely hard, but he somehow thought that I wanted him to postpone the deadline and he told me to just read the textbook. He did acknowledge that he misunderstood me later, but still, it was kind of hurtful. Nevertheless, I would still recommend his class because you can really learn a lot from his lectures.

I took introductory phonology with Professor Hayes and found his teaching style both innovating and instructional. His demeanor makes him easily approachable and his class interesting. Pr. Hayes has an incredible sense of humor, as there was never a class where I didn't laugh out loud at least once. His class was one of the most enjoyable that I have taken at UCLA in the linguistics dept, but I suppose that depends on your aptitude for phonology. I would defiantly recommend taking a class with Professor Hayes if given the opportunity.
