Review #1 / Course: LATN 1001 / Instructor: WATANABE A
Professor Watanabe is great teacher. He is always willing to help you in his office hours and goes over exactly what will be on the quiz and exams with you the day before. However, do not skip class. His lectures are pretty important as you cover readings, vocabulary, and he will help you ace the department exams. There is a lot of vocabulary which in my opinion was the hardest part about the class. Also you basically analyze words and determine their gender, tense, person, function, etc. This is for all Latin1001 classes so be prepared to do that. It is very possible to make an A course but it is not an easy give me A. You do have to work for it.

Watanabe isn't a bad teacher, but he doesn't present the material in a very interesting way. Caesar is already pretty boring, Watanabe made it worse. Easy to make a good grade though.

Review #4 / Course: LATN 2051 / Instructor: WATANABE A
This is a very difficult class with a bad grading scale...does not round up grades even if you have an 89.5, which can really effect your GPA since its a 5 class. STUDY

Poor you if you still are taking Latin. But, Dr. Want. is a nice man and tells you what you need to know. Mostly review (or in my case, 1st time I actually learned it)

Review #9 / Course: LATN 2051 / Instructor: WATANABE A
Mr. Watanabe is one of the best teachers for this course. He is very fair, but this course was a little tough to memorize everything. I would definitely recommend this teacher. He's actually nice.
