SPAN1001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

The class was okay. Busy work, had to print a lot of stuff (most we didn't use). She's pretty nice, little strange at times. Required (by the end of the first week) a $200 looseleaf UWG edition book we can't sell back. Did a couple partner projects. No solo oral projects, so that's good. Tests were very fair- she's tough on marking accents though.

She is easy to understand, and willing to help you any way she can. She does grade difficult for the accent marks. She makes the class fun!

Profa Orr is a great Spanish teacher if you're new to the language. While she does have her strange moments where she plays youtube videos over and over or makes the class sing in rounds, you will definitely learn a ton from her. Her tests are fair and she's pretty flexible schedule wise. I really enjoyed her class and learned a lot from her.

She is an all right teacher. She makes you do a lot of partner stuff & some videos off of youtube. She does however give you good study guides for test and quizzes. Basically as long as out stay out of her way she will stay out of yours. If you have had spanish in the past, then you should be ok.

She has such a fun attitude. She clearly loves teaching. If you do not understand then she will help you. Towards the end of the semester she begins to grade harder but that just is to make sure we are learning. Her tests are straight like the study guide and the ace practice tests. I have had spanish before so that may have helped me.

The BEST spanish teacher you can get. She gives lots of extra credit, and will take the time to teach you what you don't understand. If you don't understand something in class go talk to her. She is sweet and will talk you through whatever you don't understand. She is awsome!

If you've never had Spanish before then Profesora Orr is not for you. She's a good teacher but as others have said I do not like her teaching style. Luckily for me I have had 4 years of Spanish. You must read every chapter over & over to get a grasp of the concepts. She is a tough grader, but if you truly want to lean to speak it then she will help

If you learn more through repeditive writing rather than talking and pointless activities, then this teacher is not for you, although she is extremely nice and will work with you. Love the teacher, didn't like her style.

I love her to death! She is the best teacher I have ever had. She is so understanding and will help you with anything. I wish she taught 2001!

Very good teacher as long as you attend class. She won't help you if she sees you aren't putting forth the effort that is required to learn any foreign language. Makes class very interesting.
