I took this class with a TA, not the professor, but I loved this class. I learned so much in Italian and the TA was so helpful and understanding when we would try to formulate conversation or questions. This class is entirely in Italian and while it can be confusing at times, the TA would repeat herself and answer any questions. Not many assignments and if there were assignments they never felt like busy work. Lots of studying outside of the class but that's to be expected with a language class.

When I found out that professor Tognozzi would be teaching Italian 6 I did think twice about whether or not I should take the course. The concept of a professor teaching a language course is almost unheard of and it was a bit intimidating. However, after attending the first day of class I knew that I would be just fine. At times the work load did seem overwhelming, however it wasn't impossible to accomplish. Furthermore, the work is designed to make students think outside the box and begin to use their ananytical and critical skills with Italian prose. As far as the stories go, it is true that some were boring, but for the most part they were enjoyable. She is a very funny and charismatic woman who truly cares about her students learning as much as possible about Italian culture, literature and language. I highly recommend any course taught by her. Her grading is very fair and her lectures are well organized and enjoyable. The tests are not very difficult, if you take the time to study the material. Readings are very important for tests (as jensen states below), however she gives her students ample opportunity within class and during office hours to clear up any misunderstandings, etc. All in all she is a great professor.
