TAs do a lot of the work. But he does a good job teaching during lectures. Take notes and definitely go to the discussion section. Ling is a hard subject and he wants his students to do well.

Comment:
He is a very nice guy. He wants his students to pass, and he makes it known. He's also forgiving when it comes to any mishaps with grades since language is so pliable. Unfortunately, he does not teach the class at all really. The TAs do everything, and I don't even know what mine is talking about half of the time. The quizzes and tests are hard.

Comment:
Go to class-but the slides go to fast and he skips over slides. also, there are only 3 exams-that are about 30-40 questions each. and 5 homeworks that you need to do well. if you make an attempt-he wont really care either. he doesnt have office hours & puts everything off on his ta's.

He makes everything seem so much harder then it is. My TA's are foreign and its hard to understand them which doesn't help. Be prepared to teach the material to yourself, that's the only way I understood it. I had to put in a lot of work to get to that point too.

Comment:
Professor Cole was a terrible professor. He only taught one day a week, and barely taught. His ta's which were foreign, did all of the grading and did more than the actual professor did. Do not take his class. he makes everything seem much harder & the homework is difficult.

He is the best professor I've ever had. Although he makes you work a lot, it's totally worth it. YOU WILL BENEFIT A LOT IF YOU ACTUALLY DO THE READING. Anyone who complains about his class just doesn't feel like actually working for a change.

He is very hard, but very fair. Be prepared with your facts and he will expand your mind. Really nice guy, and the smartest teacher I have ever had.

This is probably the best professor at UDEL. We are lucky to have him. Only people who were looking for an easy class are complaining. Everything is well laid out & it is easy to get an A if you pay attention to the course materials.

Comment:
Not a great class- content is boring and hard to understand for first half of semester- you really don't interact w/ Prof Cole at all- everything is done through your TA's - Curve and extra credit are very helpful- some TA's are foreign

Useless class...Hardcore curve...Boring lectures, but I went to laugh at Peter talk. Thank God for TA's...although its funny that they can barely speak english, yet are teaching you linguistics.
