Pros: This class was often the bright part in my day. Marcie's enthusiastic personality made class and subject enjoyable. She goes in depth with the cultural aspects and can answer any question that is asked. She also is very lenient with due dates! Such an enjoyable class
Cons: I think this is more a departmental issue rather than than the teacher, but the content is sometimes rushed in order to get all the material covered. Grammar and vocabulary are sometimes not covered thoroughly.
If given the opportunity, take Marcie! If you put in slight effort this class is a very attainable A.

Elementary German I
4****
Pros: She's a really good teacher. She's very understanding and will always accept late work. The handouts and printouts are the only homework that is graded, so try to keep up with those, while the workbook is not, and in my opinion, rather useless. She will give you study guides the day before tests, and they pretty much road map the entire test. The final is very long, but it's pretty much content from every test just put together.
Cons: The class can be quite boring, and sometimes you will want to skip/not pay attention. Beware however, because she grades participation, so try to pay attention/ participate, or at least make it look so.
She doesn't physically take attendance, but if she notices that you miss class a lot, she will slap a low attendance grade on you at the end of the semester.



She's a pretty quick grader, but wont enter your grades online until the end of the semester, so you kind of have to keep up with your grade yourself.

Elementary German I
5*****
Pros: -Awesome, super-friendly lady

-Native english speaker

-Knows German extremely well, is absolutely fluent

-Very forgiving about turning in assignments, you can practically wait until the day before the test to turn all that unit's material in

-Somewhat forgiving about attendance

-She tries very hard to make things fun

-She literally showed us the test the day before taking it multiple times
Cons: -Can be awkward when trying to make things fun

-Not her fault, but the German curriculum seems super rushed and you simply can't develop an effective vocabulary in a single semeseter. Even if you can structure a sentence, you are always at a loss for what -that- word is in German
Overall fantastic teacher, clearly knows that the school system is an ineffective bureaucracy; she just wants you to learn German and the grades aren't a big static part of the class. It's a pretty easy A if you try, otherwise almost a free B unless you are an idiot.

Intermediate German I
5*****
Pros: Great, wants to help students. Easy to understand, funny, and very understanding.



Is more than willing to work with students.
Cons: Attendance, but it's a language class so being in class makes a huge difference anyways.



6 essays, and by essay, I mean like 150 words on topics like weekend plans or whatever she comes up with that day.
4 tests (over 4 chapters in textbook) and a final that is cumulative and covers a 5th chapter as well.



Take her, she only teaches < 2002 and is by far the best one out there!

Pros: McHugh is one of the best and most understanding teachers i have ever had the pleasure to know. I'm terrible at foreign languages and she helped me get through both 1102 and 2001. She is always willing to help, and makes class fun and entertaining. If you put forth a little effort you will be sure to make a good grade in her class.
Cons: Literally: none
Definitely take her if you have the chance!

Pros: Marcie makes learning German so much fun! I had her for a few years of German and she really takes an interest in making sure everyone knows that material really well before the test.
Cons: Grammar and the articles can be confusing and you have to spend a lot of time outside of class to make sure that you know them VERY well.
If you are going to take German make sure your teacher is Frau Marcie!

5*****
Pros: McHugh is a wonderful teacher who will do as much as she can to help you. She is not a harsh grader and her class is enjoyable.
Cons: This con is about the intro classes in general: the workbooks are awful and they don't help you learn. Also, you rarely speak in German until the 2000 level for some reason. Otherwise, great course and I highly recommend Marcie.
This is an enjoyable class.
