Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Mr. Valerio is very knowledgeable in the area of Hispanic culture. His teaching style is simple and formatted to meet the needs of his students. His quick wit and excellent sense of humor make him ideal for teaching important material in a relevant way.
The highlights of this course were personal stories that Mr. Valerio told us. In addition to this, the books we read and topics we discussed inside of class were fun, interactive, and relatable. I learned about the history and beginnings of intrinsic issues of Spanish culture and they key influencers in today's modern culture.
