Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would highly recommend this course because it has significantly improved my conversational Spanish skills. It is a higher level class that it still beneficial to college freshmen who have had experience with AP, AICE, or IB Spanish courses. My class has fewer than 20 students in it which I enjoy because I believe it is much easier and more effective to practice a foreign language, especially conversationally, with a smaller class size. The professor is very helpful and is willing to devote time to each student to improve his or her skills. The material of the course is very interesting and applicable to many aspects of life that one will encounter. Overall, it is an excellent course.
I enjoyed being offered a diverse collection of topics that are covered in the required textbook for the course. Each topic was relevant and useful to the world and I feel like I genuinely improved my knowledge and understanding of the language after every chapter. This course expands past the basic grammar lessons of lower level Spanish courses; it offers you topics and ideas that are interesting and things that you will undoubtedly use in everyday conversational speaking.

Advice for students:
There is daily homework for this class, which is generally expected for a Spanish course, or any foreign language course, considering how necessary daily practice is when learning a language. The advice I would give would be to take the homework seriously and to take notes on each lesson prior to the class so that you are learning it beforehand, rather than scrambling to absorb the information during class. This will definitely improve your grasp on the vocabulary and grammar.
