Professor McLean's lectures are wonderful. They are funny and well-organized, and his techniques for helping students learn grammar rules are helpful as well as highly entertaining. Exams and quizzes are fair (and even--dare I say it?--fun), and he goes out of his way to make sure his students are getting all the help they need. The result is that you learn a lot, and you have a lot of fun doing it. Great sense of humor, easy to talk to, and knowledgeable about his subject; if he doesn't know the answer, chances are he knows where to find it. Professor McLean made Latin 1 & 2 two of the best classes I've taken at UCLA so far. I highly highly recommend him.
