Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this class because the teacher was very enthusiastic about the class and about our development as Spanish speakers. We would begin each class with conversations with the people next to us either about a prompt/question or just normal conversations in general, like what their weekend was like.
While reviewing basic Spanish such as grammar and vocabulary, the class' main focus was expanding knowledge on the cultures of Spanish-speaking countries. I learned about how now all people in Spanish-speaking countries spoke the same way and how grammar and vocabulary differ depending on where you go. Additionally, a huge focus of the class was on writing coherent, argumentative essays in Spanish, to show that we could fully read and write academically along with the speaking skills we learned.

Advice for students:
To succeed, do not take this class lightly! It is very easy to not do the work and fall behind, but in the end that always comes back to haunt you. Try your best to keep up with all of the work and if it gets too hard or you do not understand a certain topic, go to office hours. The professor is one of the nicest I've ever had and is very understanding, and she will always do her best to help you get back on track. Also, do not worry if you fail a test or two because they are pretty difficult, but as long as you do the homework assignments and participate in class, a low A or high B is very much attainable.
