Pretty easy, overall.
I wouldn't recommend this course for anyone who genuinely wants to learn Spanish. It only involves textbook work and multiple choice quizzes. There are no speaking or listening tests, and the midterm and final exam are both very easy.
I definitely DIDN'T learn how to speak Spanish - I just finished Spanish III, and I still don't even know how to roll my tongue. However, I am able to understand Spanish labels and other simple texts.

Advice for students:
I found it helpful to type the vocab words in a Word document. That way, I could use the search option to quickly find any word I forgot. I also used a note card for each of the verb endings (-ar, -er, and -ir), and copied their various conjugations.
