Quarter Taken: Fall 2018 Submitted Dec. 5, 2018 Grade Received: A

This class was really amazing. You learn so much about the history of Brazil without the boring lectures and readings. The class consists of reading some short stories and watching films in class--they're easy to comprehend and honestly really interesting. There are only a few quizzes and essays throughout but the workload is light and they're super easy to complete. Attendance does matter though, so you have to go to class. I totally recommend this class as an easy GE or just to learn about different parts of the world.

Quarter Taken: Fall 2015 Submitted Feb. 23, 2016 Grade Received: A+

I just took the class for an easy GE and it totally was one! But it wasn't just easy, it was pretty interesting too. There was a lot about Brazilian history and culture that I never really knew about-- and I swear to you it's not boring stuff! The teacher is super nice and even though his lectures seem to go a little long, they really aren't that bad! There is barely any reading for this class (NO TEXTBOOK!!) and the quizzes and the final are soooOOOooo easy. The midterm essay is whatever, but I'm just not super great at writing essays in general. I got an A+ in the class it was so easy. But you have to go to class.
