The Study of Language
5*****
Pros: He is really cool and awesome! His class is very interesting and he comes off as extremely excited about what he is teaching! If you can take him cause he is awesome. and he is kinda cute! He also loves to make jokes and presents the info in a way we will be able to remember it
Cons: There aren't many cons.. his attendance policy is strict, but that is just because he wants you to come to class cause there is not much on ELC
Best decision I made was to take his class.

Pros: Berger is really excited about linguistics and makes the topic extremely interesting. He's not afraid of embarrassing himself, and you can tell he is passionate about what he teaches. He gives lots of extra credit on exams and makes himself very available to his students. Take him! The class is an easy A, and it's fun.
Cons: Daily attendance is a grade, as is participation. Miss class 5 times and he won't let you take the final.

5*****
Pros: He is a very good teacher. He is also very nice and humble. He tries very hard to make class interesting and he is never dull. You can tell that he is very passionate and interested in the subject. Know what montana-salish is! He loves that language. Also, on bonus points on tests, he always asks what his office hours are. I learned a lot in his class. The tests aren't that hard however, watch out for the 2nd test!
Cons: He rarely, but sometimes may use harsh language in class. Most often he uses it to teach something but if that really bothers you then just a heads up. It's only happened like 3 or 4 times though. His tests are fairly easy, but you HAVE to know the material.

5*****
Pros: 4 homework assignments

3 tests and then the final (not comprehensive)

the book is really easy to read and the chapters are short.

Cons: Serious about attendance.

He is really nice, and the class is really easy. He is not a strict grader at all. He tries and gives you the most points possible on the hw and on the tests. There is always extra credit questions on the tests which are helpful. He is really serious about attendance though.

Pros: Funny, engaging

Good use of examples

Very straight-forward

Reviews before tests

Exam is not cumulative!

Cons: If you are not in love with Linguistics, some of this stuff can be a little dry.

Can be a little scattered/disorganized

No slides on eLC, mostly because he doesn't use slides at all. Writes everything on the board
Marcus is awesome...if you have to take this class, I would recommend taking it with him!
