Intermediate Modern Eastern Armenian
Fall 2015 - Most phenomenal, inspirational, eye-opening professor at UCLA. This women has dedicated her entire life to teaching, and it shows. She mentions that if she could, she would sleep in the classroom. Going to class, I feel like I've entered the home of a genuinely warm family member. In class, we sing, recite poetry, act out plays, have hilarious discussions, and learn about our culture and language. You will never be afraid to speak up, and state whatever is on your mind. There will be homework but it's all doable. We had 1 vocabulary test, just make flashcards, everyone pretty much gets an A. We were going to have a second vocal test as our final, and she told us to write our grades on a slip of paper, and if the majority of us were honest and wrote the grade she believed we deserved than we would not have a vocab test. Apparently we were honest enough so we didn't have a final. What other class can you imagine this happening in? Certainly not in neuroscience. If you don't take any other class at UCLA, as an Armenian, do yourself a favor and take this class. It will be the best class you'll take your entire academic career.
