Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course is what really pushed me over the edge from a hesitant Spanish speaker to a more confident communicator. This was for two reasons: first, this course introduced me to a myriad of new vocabulary and secondly, this course required me to speak in both individual presentations and in group activities.
In this class, we learned a lot about grammar. By the end of this course, each student is familiar with all 16 tenses in the Spanish language. We also learned about culture; at the beginning of the year each student must make a biographical presentation of a famous Hispanic/Latino person. In addition, we devoted a few days to learning about Día de los Muertos.

Advice for students:
This course does require a lot of work to succeed. Most of the work takes place in class, but it is still rigorous. I would not recommend taking this course unless you have a passion for the Spanish language.
