Quarter Taken: Fall 2018 Submitted Dec. 13, 2018 Grade Received: B+

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.

Quarter Taken: Fall 2017 Submitted Dec. 26, 2017 Grade Received: B+

With little to no background in Italian and Spanish, I took Italian 1 to begin my language requirement thinking it would entail the basics of Italian. For the most part, it was. But Truong is a complete mess. She means well and often extends deadlines if people struggle to complete assignments, but her availability is slim and she disregards students who can't keep up with her pace (which is somewhat fast). She would constantly email random new assignments that are due as early as a few hours before class, so you need to check your emails often. The homework and tests are easy, she just wasn't an enjoyable professor. Would not recommend.

Quarter Taken: N/A Submitted March 2, 2013 Grade Received: N/A

I honestly believe that she is a great teacher for an Intro class.

She's really sweet, at first it seems really intimidating because the first day she speaks ALL IN ITALIAN.

But you'll find that it's not that bad, she'll only ever ask you to repeat her and she gives examples of what she wants to hear from you.
If you don't understand she'll keep asking in different ways, or ask someone else to explain to the whole class and if no one knows what she's saying she'll switch to English.

I really liked her: she really forces you to learn and practice Italian.
