All Ratings and Reviews for Pamela Munro
It was okay.
Perhaps if you were a hard core linguist and/or a Star Trek fan you'd be into it.
Overall not too hard. Reading is quite fun (from a non-linguist)
You won't really get to know the people in class since it's primarily lecture.
Cool experience, though.
Prof. Munro is very funny and an entertaining speaker.
Professor Munro was a really fantastic professor. I highly recommend her not only for her wit, but for her commitment to student learning.
Professor Munro is undoubtedly the best Linguistics professor I've had at UCLA (and I've had quite a few). She shows a unique passion for her subject and effectively teaches about Native American languages to other students. She is extremely helpful if you're ever in a bind and she answers e-mails more quickly than most other professors I've encountered.
She is an excellent teacher but she expects a lot from the students. Just keep up with the homework and attend ALL the lectures. She's always willing to help out so go to office hours
Prof Munro is an excellent teacher and speaker. Students are expected to do their part, but that is what makes people learn in her class. Great discussions too. She's always ready to help and very approachable.
Professor Munro is an excellent teacher and you can tell that she really cares about her students' learning. Very respectable as a professor, a researcher, and a person.
Professor Munro is one of the best professors in the universe. She is very inspiring and extremely knowledgeable. Although the class is relatively easy, you won't be lazy because her passion will motivate you to give your best.

She is a dedicated professor that cares about student learning. She is a bit arrogant; however, she is nationally recognized for her contributions to Linguistics. She is a great person.
I could not stand this class. It was such a pain and turned out to be my hardest class (I still had a 94%). I would recommend this class to Linguistics majors; however, any non-Linguistics major should refrain from this course. It was really difficult without any Linguistics background. I worked my ass off to understand the concepts.
Overall: Professor Munro is an awesome individual. The past reviews are correct about her character. The class itself is not that great if you are not a Linguistics major.

Professor Munro is the nicest woman ever. She brought us Diddy Riese cookies for the final! She is super concerned about students and also very friendly. She does however have what I call "granny sass," but it's all in good humor.
I'm not a Ling major, heck I am not even a humanities major, and this class was pretty straightforward. Just read your course reader before each quiz (and each week you only need to read about 10ish pages, and the font is pretty big too) and take notes. The quizzes are open *handwritten* notes, so they aren't too hard if you study. And the professor goes over all the concepts in class pretty clearly already. Even if you don't do well, you have a chance to take a makeup quiz for every quiz, so there's no reason you can't ace them. On top of that, you get one final amnesty quiz to replace any quiz you want!
The homework assignments though were time-consuming, so starts those early! And go to the TA or professor if you have any questions, they are super accommodating in helping you with the hw.
The final was pretty hard. Maybe it's because I skipped a few lectures, but I did not really know how to do one of the questions because the professor never really went over the concept. However, if you did well in the quizzes and homework, then the final doesn't really change your grade much unless you do exceptionally bad.
