This class was tough.
I would highly recommend this course to any student who wants to expand their knowledge of the Spanish language through writing, speaking, and watching films. This class was the ideal environment to have one on one instruction as well as small group discussions in a supportive environment. Professor Perez knows what students need to succeed and is always available for questions before or after class.
After this course, I can say that I am officially a Spanish speaker. I feel more confident presenting in both English and Spanish, and my ability to carry on a conversation in Spanish has grown immensely. I have learned a multitude of vocabulary, and grammatical structures that will help me in my future interactions with native speakers.

Advice for students:
In order to succeed, this class required a great amount of effort. Use flash cards for vocabulary, ask questions during class if you don't understand something, and do your homework. The homework will really help during class because it will be a review of material you just covered. Also, study hard for exams and do not expect that it will be easy because you may know the language. The grammar is tricky and requires a lot of practice from the workbook, worksheets, as well as online sources that also offer practice quizzes.
