    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course in the fall or spring semester. However, attempting 5 credit hours in 4 weeks was a little difficult.

    Course highlights:

    It brought back what we learned in high school as well as the basics and essentials of learning the language.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study study study. Put in the hours and do the online work. It will pay off in the end.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The intermediate class is said to be what you should take if you took two years in high school and "know a little spanish". So I enrolled in this course thinking I would definitely learn new things, yet there would still be a review of the basics. I was wrong-very wrong. What we all knew of spanish (everyone in the class) was gone over within the first week. Everything beyond that point is brand new information-information you are expected to learn very very quickly without a lot of guidance. Everything you learn is on an online course website. The class itself is just saying the words together and having very short poor conversations with your classmates with the information you just learned. Its not helpful because if you are saying it wrong you both have no idea. Although Mr. Perez is a nice guy- there was a bit of a language barrier so when asked what we need to study or specific questions a lot of times the answer had nothing to do with the question. My advice- either be prepared to study a lot or take the basic course.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights would be that I did learn a lot. I can understand a few words and get the general gist out of a conversation I hear in Spanish now. This might not sound like a lot but for only four months of a different language I think it's actually quite impressive.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Figure out how to use the online course work right away and keep up with the tasks on the calendar ahead of time. Also quizlet has amazing study guides for it through techttu

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was difficult at times but it was one of the most exciting courses I have ever had the pleasure of taking! I would take this course over and over if it was possible. Mr.Verona was a phenomenal teacher and I couldn't have asked for anything more. In this course we went over the basics of the Spanish language along with some more difficult concepts.

    Course highlights:

    From this course I am now able to understand quite a few things in Spanish and I can also respond to most statements and questions. I can also read simple texts and comment on them. I also learned quite a few things about the different cultures and traditions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is definitely challenging but its not difficult as long as you are responsible and keep up with your coursework.
