He is pretty boring but bearable if you try. His midterm and final were multiple choice and the essay was pretty easy. Weekly hw can take 10 minutes to an hour to do. You must READ THE BOOK if you want to do well on the hw. Overall, it's not that bad and if you take it, you should survive.
Took Ling 1. It was one of the most boring classes, because of his style, even though the subject was interesting. You must read the text or you will not do well on the hw. Midterms and finals were multiple choice and the paper was simple enough. Easy class, but the professor is kind of boring.
