    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course if you are actually serious about learning Spanish or need to refresh your knowledge of Spanish. The workload of the course is reasonable. Keep in mind that it is a 4 credit hour course, so it does require a little more time.

    Course highlights:

    This was a refresher course for me, but I got a chance to enhance my conversational skills.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you've never taken Spanish before or don't know enough Spanish to start a conversation, you may want to consider studying before taking the course and planning for tutoring/office hours.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course instructor was fabulous and was able to provide additional learning resources outside of the textbook, which really helps in an online-only learning environment. The textbook was a challenge to understand, but once I understood the pedagogical approach, I was able to utilize the information more successfully.

    Course highlights:

    This course was a fantastic "starter" for a language course, especially if you aren't very familiar with online learning. Although the course is fast-paced, it is also self-paced, so you are able to work on the entire week's assignments when it best fits into your personal schedule. This allowed me to schedule "study days" and "review days" separately before I had quizzes or oral presentations due. I now feel comfortable asking basic questions to my Spanish-speaking friends and they are always happy to help tutor me in their language!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    First, be sure you feel comfortable in the online learning environment. With very little "class connection," you are really expected to be able to navigate the course requirements on your own, although the instructor was always happy to answer my weekly questions about the material. I would suggest that as you go through each chapter, start a new email where you can add questions as they come up in your reading or practice. Then, once you finish a chapter, send your questions to your course instructor. This makes it really easy to "not forget" what you had a questions about!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is good for Journalism students since it is required to take a language class. Not only that, but professor Peterson is a wonderful professor looking to see students engage with each other as well as the class.

    Course highlights:

    I was able to learn the basics of Spanish. It was engaging and I was happy to have a professor such as Peterson to help me along the way.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with studying and learn from the material in front of you. It is important to keep everything in mind. This class will focus on all details of the course.
