Dr. Thomas was very professional, thorough, and informative. Her class was extremely interesting, and I learned a great deal about Brazilian culture from the excellent readings that she assigned and her good lectures. Definitely choose her for a class if you're interested in the subject material (or if you have to take it).
Dr. Thomas provided a great class for those who want to improve on their writing skills. I found the class to be very challenging with a lot of reading and journal writing, but it pays off after I realized how much I took away from the class. I feel more confident in my speaking and writing abilities and I wish she was offering more classes. I highly recommend taking her course.
