Tons of homework in which they took your points off simply based on something minor and irrelevant. The midterm questions were poorly written and structured. Ling1 taught by this professor is by far the worst ling class I've taken. The other ling uppers are way better than this. However, the final was pretty easy.

I actually took ling1 with Professor Hyams, and I think she is basically a good professor. Although the lectures are not that interesting, she really presents some really interesting information, theories and research methods to us. The exams are easy, so this is an easy A class.

I think Professor Hyams is not as bad as other comments here. Although I admit that her lectures can sometimes be boring, her lecture notes are very clear. She is extremely knowledgeable. She is also very passionate about her subject. If you go to her office hours, she will be very patient to tell you everything you confused about. You can't go wrong with one of the legends in the language acquisition theory. (you'll learn a lot more if you do all the readings she posts online)
