    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend with thorough research on an instructor (check online ratings, ask friends/classmates, etc). I had an instructor change halfway through the course and the dramatic change in teaching styles was difficult to adjust to. This class is necessary to advance to the Intermediate Spanish classes so make sure you have a good instructor!

    Course highlights:

    Mainly focused on continuing the basics in communication, grammar, speaking, etc from SPA 1510.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    There are two things that students need- flashcards and a study buddy. Flashcards were great because you can pull them out anytime just to review when you had a minute, and a study buddy is helpful to practice conversations.

    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It is an easy class that you will still learn from. Basically no take home homework.

    Course highlights:

    I learned what I need to in order to pass but not enough to speak it fluently.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed do the work in the homework and check your progress by doing the pretest.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I learned a lot from having previous knowledge of the Hispanic culture and language. There was a plethora of things that were discussed that were new to me, despite the fact I thought I knew it all. Great class, very fast paced but he will slow it down if needed. Great professor, great environment.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the Hispanic culture and a lot of history about it. Besides learning Spanish, you are taken into the roots of where the Spanish language has come from and the people who actually don't support it. You also learn about the visual arts created by Spaniards as far as the art and the meanings behind why the artist painted the photo the way he did and what that represented for this culture.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you listen, come to class, take notes on things that you feel are even the slightest of difficult, and do not be afraid to ask questions. He is very fair with grading however buy the time that tests occur, he will not necessarily give you the benefit of doubt considering he covered the correct way to execute this information.
