    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I probably would not recommend this course, well more like the professor. I am an early college student taking this college course. For our electives we take them at a college level to count for both our high school and college credit. So, while taking Spanish one, me and many of my other early college classmates had trouble learning the information. Our professor was not the best but I guess it slipped her mind that most of her class was early college students because she would tell us we should have already learned the material when in fact we hadn't had the chance to. Some of the basic information was brand new to me so I had trouble getting through the class. I had my Spanish speaking friends help me, but even that was a hassle because of the major misunderstanding of a lot of the assignments. The course itself is alright but with a special group of kids certain steps should be taken to make sure everyone, or mostly everyone, can have a fair chance and be successful.

    Course highlights:

    After the course I did take away a lot. It took me a while the grasp the concept of a lot of the material since it was brand new and foreign but I pulled through. While taking Spanish two I felt more confidant since the assignments I had in Spanish one kind of repeated themselves, the rules got stuck in my brain. I learned that I could have tried a bit harder but overall it worked out in the end successfully.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you have no previous Spanish knowledge then I suggest getting to learn study habits that help you and get friends that have passed the course, doing good in the class right now or even a Spanish speaking friend like I did.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is an online course, and I really like the way it is set up. It is asynchronous, which means one can complete it at one's own pace, without having a set meeting time online with the class. There are deadlines to complete the assignments, but they are reasonable, and the professor is very easy to work for and with, understanding when there is a problem with the assignments.

    Course highlights:

    I really learned a lot of grammar and practical conversation skills very quickly, and the review feature of the LearnSmart section of the course is very thorough. There is an ebook copy of the text, along with online access to the course, which saves you money, if you're comfortable using an ebook rather than a physical textbook. A great way to learn a foreign language quickly!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pace yourself; look at the assignments for each week, and divide them up so you can complete them by Friday each week. If you want to take a foreign language, and do not mind online work, this is the course for you!
