I have had this teacher for two italian language courses, I enjoyed both of them. The work load is the same as in any class, and after two courses, my italian has really improved. Great teacher who encourages students to speak and practice italian. If you want to learn italian you should take this class!

Very good teacher. She an be a little strict, but only if you don't pay attention, show up late, don't do the work, and are disrespectful. Do the work, pay attention, and she's really nice, and makes class really fun. The exams are easy if you know you're material, and we get to watch movies in class sometimes :)

Giovanna is a wonderful teacher!!! She pushes her students to excel, and requires no less of them than she should : the best. Giovanna is a huge resource and help - available to accomodate when she see's that you are willing to put in the effort you need to. I've had Giovanna as a teacher three times, and everytime I really enjoyed her class. She is a great person with a big heart, and is a very good teacher. I would definitely recommend.

Avoid her like the plague. Is always moody, very condescending, treats her students nicely one day, the next as though shes teaching an elementary school class in Italy. Rude, not helpful at all during office hours. Not too difficult however.
