Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would highly recommend the class because all of the information is applicable. It's not just learning from a textbook; it's interactive. We played games and had to actively use the language. Through the class, we got to learn about all these different countries and what makes them unique. The poetry we got to read challenged us not just in Spanish but in thinking about the world in general. The movies we got to watch were different from the usual movies I watched because they showed us different parts of human nature and were all very moving.
Hands down the best part of the course was how much practice we got actually speaking the language. I learned how to incorporate more tenses and moods into my speech and, of course, I learned more vocabulary. My usage of Spanish improved vastly through this class and I think that is why I enjoyed it so much. I could actually take the information out of the class.

Advice for students:
Honestly, the only thing you need to actively study on your own is vocabulary and verb tenses. But even with those things, there are games and in class work to help you succeed. As long as you pay attention in class, you shouldn't have any problems.
