Having no background in Italian, I struggled in this class all quarter. Every class is taught in strictly Italian and at a very fast pace – which is understandable since there's so much to cover in so little time! Professor Truong does a great job of engaging her students with the material while teaching, making learning a new language slightly more enjoyable. She is very helpful and genuinely cares about her students. She goes out of her way to make sure that all of her students are doing well and offers advice/tips throughout the quarter that can boost your grade. & Although the amount of work she assigns for this class is a lot, she forces you to actually practice and learn the material which is something I appreciated.

Hoang is so incredibly nice. She's very thorough in her explanations and can laugh along/acknowledge when we're all confused by a complicated new topic. I really feel that she diffused a lot of the tension that comes along with the randomly-calling-on of most language classes by keeping everything with the whole group. Generous with partial credit too, so as long as you go to class, exams are ok! Overall, take her. A very kind and thoughtful person

Professor Truong was just OK. There was definitely a jump in work load between Italian 5 and 6, but it wasn't too difficult. There were five two page compositions and two oral presentations, plus the usual two quizzes, midterm and final.

Truong was a moderately fair grader overall, but I felt like she could get a little nit-pickey especially when grading the compositions. Also, she doesn't explain her assignments very well.

Troung was definitely more strict than the other Italian teachers I've taken--she makes you turn in the homework and other busywork, which made me feel like I was back in high school. But overall, if you're one of those people who has done all of your assignments throughout Italian 1-5, I'd say you'd be fine.
