    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was an interactive course which focused on multiple aspects of the Spanish language while still throwing in some cultural knowledge as well. There was a little bit of everything with videos, online worksheets, essays, and group work. Overall very well-rounded while still expanding on my understanding of the language and cultures of Latin America.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed the various types of media that was used to learn about different issues in Latin America. We watched various documentaries on the mines in Bolivia, the biodiversity in Costa Rica, and the importance of baseball in the Dominican Republic. We also got first-hand stories of other people who had spent time living abroad across Spain and South America.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's all about putting in the work and effort. The class is relatively easy and straightforward as long as you use the given materials to shape your arguments but pay attention to the grammar basics. There wasn't an excessive amount of worked involved aside from one-page essays and weekly online homework, but it was simple and quick to complete.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It is not only very easy to get situated into the feeling of the class, but the professor is super friendly! The content is just the right amount of challenging and it really helps eliminate some of the English-Spanish translation nuances.

    Course highlights:

    I took the class online and I thought that the best part about this structure was how portable the class was. I could be at work and still able to do assignments!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to test your translation skills and learn a lot of little particular things that help further differentiate English from Spanish.
