He was an amazing Russian teacher who liked to sing and was very enthusiastic. If you are a good student and pay attention in his class for the first few months, you are guaranteed an easy year. I was one of his favorites, so towards the end of the year, I was listening to music I his class and he didn't mind. Also, since he liked me, he graded my tests easier and forgot to take off a lot of points. When he reviews for the tests, pay attention and discretely write stuff down, it is the test.

Kapitan is colder than a Siberian winter. I've never met someone so consumed with hate. He has won awards but it wouldn't be evident to anyone who was unaware of the fact. He will not ever, ever answer a question. Instead he pivots to his favorite response, "What language is this." The student always cordially replies Russian and the class moves on. Towards the end of the year he pleaded to us to ask him questions yet he continued the same practice of asking, "What language is this."

Dr Cukierman is the best teacher you could ever hope to have. He will make you work, and the expectations are high, but if you are willing, he will not let you fail.

He can't explain grammar but he lets you copy the answers during quizzes. He doesn't like the smart kids just the party crowd, and we sign a lot.

This is an easy class, it is easy to get by doing nothing, but if you do make some sort of effort and study a bit it really will pay off.
