    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because the teacher made it fun and interesting! I wasn't into Spanish, but the teacher was the best teacher I've taken for Spanish. I don't care if you like or don't like a class, but the most important thing about what makes a class interesting or not, begins with the teacher. You may like a class, but a bad teacher can ruin it all together.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about Spanish, from greeting a new person to having a decent conversation with a Spanish speaking person. In high school, the Spanish I learned wasn't even close or in-depth as a university. Here, I learned how to conjugate verbs, using the present tense, as well as irregularities. The grammar structure was hard, but it was fun and interesting at the same time because it was challenging. The real highlight, though, was that the teacher spoke Spanish about 98% of the time! And this was a beginning Spanish 101! I truly believe that the best way to learn Spanish is when we try our hardest to hear spoken Spanish in front of our eyes.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepare to participate in class. Participation counts as part of the final grade. Read the book before class and try your best to do all the homework; that way, you will be prepare to give answers or ask any questions during class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Shilke is German, teaching a Spanish class. That should be enough info to steer clear. Other professors are fine, but I could hardly understand her!

    Course highlights:

    I learned that sometimes you just have to make fun of a class as a whole. While I did not learn a lot Spanish wise, I made new friends and had a very interesting experience.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get a group together and really just work together. The best way to learn Spanish is to practice it.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course was very easy because I remember a lot of the basic components from high school. In class, the only thing we did was review homework. This was a problem for me because, some thing I needed the instructor to explain, she could not explain it properly.

    Course highlights:

    It was super easy because you review homework and all material that was on the test.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Find you a really good Spanish tutor to explain some of the material to you.
