LING 2100 - The Study of Language
I highly recommend him. His classes fill up fast so if you see one, snag it.
Pros: He is incredibly flexible. He'll allow you to reschedule a test no questions asked, which is really helpful when you have other exams on the same day. I personally thought the lectures were really interesting. It really made me think about language and realized just how complicated it is. It was really interesting. Since the class is lax, it is so much easier to focus on the material and enjoy it rather than worrying about getting a good grade, which in turn leads to a good grade.

Pros: Excellent GA. He is nice and willing to help. The class is very laid back and not difficult if you pay attention and do the homework. He makes it easier to learn and do well.
Cons: Linguistics is a whole new world. It does take some effort, and I'd HIGHLY recommend buying the book and doing the homework.
If you show up, pay attention, and do the work it should be an easy A

Pros: Hugo is an awesome teacher! I loved his class because he made it so fun. He really goes out of his way to make sure you get an A by telling you what will be on the test; so you know what to study for.
Cons: The homeworks are pretty tough but they are graded on completion anyways. Just write something down and he gives you credit for it.

Pros: Tells you EXACTLY what will be on the exams. There are no surprises whatsoever. As long as you do your homework and come to class, this class is a breeze.

HUGO IS AMAZING TAKE THIS CLASS.

Pros: Highly accommodating and relaxed. Tries hard to entertain through otherwise boring lectures. Really nice guy.
Cons: Tends to get disrespected. Students stroll in 10 or 15 or 30 minutes late for his class on a regular basis.
I'd highly recommend this class. It is easy and pretty fun. Homework can be difficult, but tests are easy since he gives you a roadmap the day before.

Great teacher! Very encouraging, friendly, and understanding. Tells you everything you need to study for each test. "Grades" homework, but only checks it for completion, not accuracy. Asks the class for their input when composing the test. Very nice guy- I'd love to take another one of his classes.

Pros: easy A class. Don't really have to take notes. He is funny and very lenient
Cons: boring class. He tends to get sidetracked
He is a friendly teacher and will work with you. He always gives make up exams if people do not feel like taking an exam on the day on the syllabus. His tests are easy if you review the information. He does not grade homework for completion, as long as you try. If you want an easy A class and don't mind sitting through a boring lecture, pick Mendez!
