Comment: Ugh, Varsano is enthusiastic but just totally unreasonable in her expectations. Readings are much too long, quizzes are BS, and the final was too hard. Wait for a better 7A teacher

Comment: Awesome class and very inspiring. Professor Varsano is enthusiastic, engaging, knowledgeable and very friendly. Some of the reading materials are fun to read but others have linguistic jargons. It's a challenging class, but very rewarding. Take it!

Comment: Prof. Varsano was definitely a nice person and super enthusiastic. However, the material was just so unrelatable and the exams were just hit or miss, it was hard to ace the class, even with a slight curve and generous 25% attendance...

Comment: Professor is excited about subject, exams are pretty simple short-answers (ie. Name poets from x time period). Reading and lectures are a bit dry.

Comment: Fantastic teacher who clearly loves the course and loves interacting with students. The material is somewhat boring (I took it for R1B), but the teacher is amazing and it's not too difficult.
