    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Rita was an amazing professor that truly cares about her students. While the homework load may seem excessive, it is standard for ALL Spanish classes, and it truly drives home the major points of the course. I had three years of Spanish classes before this one, so it seemed to be a breeze, but the live chat can be tricky - it forces you to demonstrate your knowledge and fluency verbally. Overall, a very thorough and helpful course for understanding the basics of the Spanish language.

    Course highlights:

    By far the easiest part of this course was the final exam. The concepts are fairly basic, and Rita makes sure that you understand what the question is asking, however, there is also an online portion where you are on your own. The hardest part of the exams is that - unlike the writing assignments - you cannot use a Spanish-English dictionary, and everything must come from memory. Thus, all of the minor details suddenly become major details during the exam.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always stay on top of the homework assignments, and do the assigned reading. This will make your learning go smoothly, and then you have the opportunity to ask questions during class instead of having to seek outside help. Also, always attend and participate in class - it's required!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is really nice and accessible.

    Course highlights:

    Doing the Live Chats. Even as an online course we were able to work with fellow classmates and practice Spanish.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not do that homework last minute. Spend time everyday on the homework throughout the week and give yourself a day to study for the quiz. Think of your questions and responses for the live chats before you do them. It makes the live chat go by faster.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was very straight forward! There were chances for extra credit, the professor answered emails within the day, and the work load was not too bad for a language course.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the elementary words in a Spanish course, and some facts about the culture and geography.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you read the book and practice saying the words.
