I love ustaza Kinda!!! She is very helpful and caring. Classes required little work but we still learned valuable things. Most of our grade was on a scaffolded group project which was not hard and tbh kind of fun.
Overall not bad class, the tasks are not very difficult, but they are terrifying in quantity. The professor is easily accessible; however, she's lagging in giving scores and feedback, and I have almost no clue what grade I'd get until the official grade is posted. More detrimentally, the class is very tedious and the materials are not very intriguing, though participation is strictly mandatory. An okay GE and writing II if you have trouble looking for them.
**I didn't have prof. Kinda Al Rifae, I had Brady Ryan (who was a grad student under her advisement I believe)**
I loved this class; it was by far my favorite of the quarter. My professor was so well prepared every time. I learned so much Arabic and got an amazing sense of achievement from this class. It did require a very high workload, but the workload was definitely worth it in my opinion since there was no busywork (everything we did was valuable). I will definitely be taking at least one more year, possibly even majoring in Arabic just from this class. Definitely recommend for anyone interested in learning a super fun and engaging language with very small class size.
