    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Taking this course made all those dreadful years of beginner's Spanish worth it. Everything comes to a full circle once you've reached this stage in your language-learning journey. You're (finally) able to have an educated and substantial conversation and utilize all of the new vocabulary you've worked so hard to memorize over the past few years. Don't stop short and take higher level Spanish courses, don't let all those years of hard work go to ruins!

    Course highlights:

    Coming to a class where everyone's Spanish-speaking ability is about the same is comforting in the sense that you're all in the same boat. Conversations flow smoother and there's less room for judgement. My favorite part of the course would have to be all the discussions we've had, small-group and big-group discussions. You're able to cover a wider range of topics because at this point you've about mastered the basics. You'll be shocked at your own ability to talk in-depth about a topic in a different language because when you're given the opportunity to talk about a topic you're passionate about, translating that passion into conveying your message in a different language becomes so much easier.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take all those repetitive exercises for granted, you may not realize it in the moment but once you're being asked to apply the information you learned, you'll thank yourself for putting in that extra work. Don't be afraid to get out of your own comfort zone, that's part of learning. Don't refrain yourself from participating because you're afraid of making mistakes, take the leap and learn from it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    My professor was amazing and super helpful and really cared about a student's ability to connect with the language.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot more about the Spanish language and certain slang terms in Spanish that I can use to sound even more like a seasoned and colloquial Spanish speaker. I also learned new ways to structure certain sentences with more complex verb tenses and conjugations.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say to an incoming student to really work on Spanish outside of the course in order to perform better in the classroom! Practicing what you know and what you learned with other people who are also taking Spanish classes also helps!

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Doing the course in the online format is so great because you are very free to do things at your own pace and it makes learning Spanish much easier because you can personally focus on the things you need to know better.

    Course highlights:

    I liked that we had weekly speaking activities and lots of practice doing writing assignments because for me personally, those two areas needed a lot of work. I learned how to write with more word variety and I was really able to apply certain vocabulary in various contexts depending on the prompts we received for our speaking and writing activities. I think having class in person, I would have resorted to a smaller vocabulary of words and not expanded my speaking as much.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely do it! It is a much better option in my opinion than the class in person.
