ITAL 1001
Elementary Italian
5*****
Pros: *uses immersion technique

*answers questions thoroughly

*is open to suggestions

*flexible office hours

*funny, great personality

*makes learning fun
Cons: *uses immersion technique
I took Magnani for Italian 1003 which is a combination of Italian 1001 & 1002. She is the only professor at UGA who I enjoyed coming to her class. We had fun while learning and learned a great deal in the semester. She takes time to know all students personally. She uses the immersion technique when teaching which is confusing at first but is very beneficial. If you have questions or don't understand a concept, she has flexible office hours and will do her best to help you understand. Brush up on your Seinfeld so you can understand some of her jokes.

ITAL 1002
Elementary Italian
5*****
Pros: -Very nice lady

-Speaks Italian very clearly and correctly

-Willing to help you if you need it

-Gives lots of practice and opportunities to actually learn the material
Cons: None!
Ms. Magnani is probably one of the best teachers I've had so far at UGA. She's very sweet and seems to actually care about the students and whether or not they understand the material. She speaks mostly in Italian during class, but it actually really helps you learn the language more effectively. She uses the book every day which can get a little tiresome, but it's really nothing too bad. By taking her class, I feel as though I really do understand Italian a lot better than I did going into it.

ITAL 1001
Elementary Italian
5*****
Pros: Homework is just a completion grade. She is so nice and if you have any questions she open to answering them.
Cons: For the culture sections on the test, some things she only says once and they end up on the test but they don't affect your grade that much. She also mostly speaks in italian the whole class helps some but not others.
You definitely need the book. She won't let you not pay attention in her class, especially since she grades participation. Great teacher!

Pros: Amazing Teacher!

easy "essay" (not a real essay)

easy project

Tests are easy/moderate

Drops lowest test grade

online assignments are easy & graded on completion
Cons: None!
She is an amazing teacher! So sweet & funny. She talks in Italian for the majority of the class, but it is not hard to follow along. She makes sure you understand the topics & helps you whenever you need it. She knows how to take a joke & will dish it right back. Highly recommend her!
