Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend taking a higher level Spanish course if you have a desire to continue your education in the Spanish language and wish to hold credits and transfer them to your college of choice, like I do by holding my Spanish IV and V credits at Rhode Island College.
Throughout Spanish IV, I learned a lot about Spanish culture in all of the Spanish-speaking countries in the world. One of my favorite projects was researching different Spanish artists and creating PowerPoint presentations on their works to showcase our newfound knowledge of Spanish culture.

Advice for students:
The largest bit of advice that I would give to students wishing to take Spanish IV is to stay on top of the work. In my class, we did large packets for homework, had several quizzes and tests per quarter, and were required to answer journal prompts once a month. Several students fell behind in Spanish IV, but a lot of motivation can help you to stay on top of the work and succeed in learning more about Spanish culture and language.
