Overall, students found Professor Hermes was an excellent instructor whose lectures were filled with enthusiasm for the material. Many appreciated the way he made the atmosphere welcoming to non-heritage students. Other students felt that he spoke a little too quickly during oral dictation exercises, and didnít clarify vocabulary terms adequately. One suggestion students had for Professor Hermes was to schedule more quizzes to gauge studentsí progress and understanding.

Most students enjoyed this course and express a desire to see more courses in Arabic available. Everyone seemed pleased with Professor Ali's handling of the material. A couple of students mention that members of the class started with very uneven levels of ability, some with basic skills in the language and others with no background at all (a common issue in language classes) and this might not have been considered properly.
