18. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
learning about the samoan culture and the importance of their heritage
Vita seems to enjoy teaching the samoan language and culture. His passion to teach the language helps him in teaching and grasping the student's attention. He is also strict when needed and lenient when needed.
kind and caring
I liked how Vita made time for the students who were struggling in the class. He split us into two groups and spent a little extra time with the students who weren't quite getting it.
Learning how to pronounce easy words. A good base will make a strong language.
The most valuable thing about the instructor is that he was abel to teach the language in an effective way. For example, he would break down each word and translate them into english this was very helpful.
First of all, it's always good to have a native speaker to teach the class. Sometimes, just hearing certain patterns in a language can help you to pick up on them. He also helped a lot in my pronunciation of each word and never gave up on a student. He was sensitive to each student's level of skill. He was also very available, giving office hours, telephone number, email, and answering questions after class. He also helped us to try to speak the language instead of just trying to memorize stuff for a quiz or test and then forget it right away. The things that I learned I am confident I can remember.
understands that were not perfect
Vita is a very kind and considerate person. He made the class very enjoyable.

28. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
learning the different aspects of samoan
I liked the dialogue and bio part of the course. speaking is better than writing.
easy to ask questions and get feedback immediately
I liked how he taught us the sentence structures but simultaneously let us know which ones weren't as common in every day speech.
I liked saying our biographies. It helped me learn how to introduce myself to other people.
What I like best about the course is the interaction with the teacher and students and making a conversation in samoan.
The thing that I liked the best in the end of the course was actually the thing that I really didn't want to do toward the end of the course: bettering my conversation skills. Although I am not at an advanced level, I can still confidently understand some things that are said in front of me by native speakers, and respond accordingly.
we got to speak out loud in class
I did not have any problems with any aspect of the class. Vita treated all the students like adults. There was a mutual agreement among the students to fulfill this role.
29. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
talking in front of the class
I didn't really care for the written assignments although they did help to understand the grammatical structure of the Samoan language.
no comment
Learning a language...I wish I'd wake up speaking a new language but I guess it doesn't work that way.
Some homework assignments were hard but with a little help, I got through them.
I didn't really care much for the textbook. Although the practice exercises are abundant, it needs more in depth explanations. Also, it would be helpful to have the vocabulary grouped by subject matter or some other way, rather than just random words that are in the practice exercises. For example, when I took Spanish in high school, we learned vocabulary about, say, going to the supermarket. Then, we learned a new grammar rule, for example, a new aspect of verb conjugation. Then, we applied the new grammar rule (for example, the verbs learned) to the vocabulary of the supermarket. For example, we would write sentences about going to the supermarket, people at the supermarket, etc, etc.. Lastly the book could use an index.

From taking this course I feel more confident when I speak the Samoan langugae and I have a better understanding on the delivery and pronuciation of the words.
None
really easy to talk to.
The instructor was very understandable and he knew that not every student was on the same level in terms of the fluency of the language. We all had different needs that the teacher did a great job addressing.
He was always there when i needed help!
Different activity and projects.

28. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
Our writing assignments I really enjoyed them all.
Being able to write a variety of writings-poems, short stories, legends, personal experience, etc., and being able to present them all.
How the material was presented and how it interested me consistently throughout the semester.
The speaking out part & the many oral presentations. It was a great way of interacting with other students.
29. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
Presentations were inconsistent because most students didn't turn in their assignments on time or they just didn't present, but overall it was a productive course for me.
Presenting using proper samoan language. It was great but I guess I just need to work on it a little more.
None
