    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    When I went into the class I couldn't say more than a few words in Spanish, but after having finished it I have been able to have full conversations.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about Hispanic culture and different Spanish speaking countries and also much more of the Spanish language than I knew before.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Listen to the professor, work on pronunciations, read the text book, do all the homework, practice, and have fun with it!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    To be honest this course for me was very challenging. I think that if you are looking to actually learn Spanish and be able to effectively communicate and understand the Spanish language and culture, then I think that this class would be great.

    Course highlights:

    When I took Spanish 1 we really learned the basics. Just like in elementary school we started off with the numbers and letters. We then moved to actually forming sentences and responding to questions. Which to be honest was the entire semester. Slowly adding more and more concepts to each lesson. You will learn the correct grammar to use Reflexive and progressive verbs. The highlight of this course was really being about to communicate and understand speaking Spanish.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To be most successful in this class I would advice paying close attention. The professor will speak in Spanish during the class time. He will ask questions in Spanish and he will expect for you to know what he says. Make sure to read all the pages he assigns for homework and study every night with flashcards. You will have quizzes every class time (Twice a week). Beware he does give oral test and quizzes the entire semester except the final. Make sure to attend all before class study groups it is really helpful. You can talk with your professor one on one about the class, homework and test. He will even study with you! Amazing!

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class is great for Dual Enrollment students, or students who can learn and retain at a rapid pace. Review of basic Spanish to progress into Spanish II or just to be prepared for real world encounters.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more about the Hispanic Culture, New unfamiliar words to describe things that I already had a good understanding for, and how to better communicate with Spanish speaking people without a script. Very realistic.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    TAKE NOTES! There will be a few things that he will mention that you might interpret as insignificant however he doesn't lecture for his health! Also study around 10 Spanish speaking countries and their location on the map for the final. You will be asked to write down about 5 and their placement on the map.
