Spring 2021 - Professor Claire is the GOAT!! I loved Professor Claire and this course in general, and this is coming from someone who is not a linguistics major and was simply taking this class as a GE. There was roughly one homework each week, one midterm, and one final. I found the lectures and slides to be very helpful. Between the lecture slides and notes/practice problems posted to CCLE, I was able to get through each homework relatively easily. Claire gave very nice and engaging lectures, making the two-ish-hour lectures fly by. We were given 24 hours for our midterm and a WHOLE WEEK (!!) to complete our final exam, which was amazing and allowed me to do well on exams relatively easily. Overall, the material really resonated with me (basically math with sounds (?) is how I'd describe it), I learned something completely new that I had no knowledge of before, and found this course to be low-stress and relatively easy compared to my other classes, so it was a really nice GE in my opinion. 10/10 would recommend!
