    This class is pretty dense in materials, but Professor Eischens is a very kind and down to earth professor! He does his best to explain the concepts to his students, and is very accessible (both via office hours and emails). The homework is a little difficult though, so do utilize your TAs and the prof as resources. Overall, Professor Eischens is probably the best professor to take Ling 20 with.

    I like how the final for the class was a take home final so we can complete it at our own pace
