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.

Because I retained most of the knowledge from high school courses, SPAN 1101 was mostly a review. Otherwise, it in general is a fast-paced course. Studying outside of class is imperative. Dr. Orr enunciates wonderfully, which is important. She also explains "exceptions" without using confusing terminology, which eliminates much stress around exams.

This is one of the worst Spanish teachers at West Georgia. All she does is hands out a lot of worksheets and tells us to divide in groups to teach ourselves the language. She never teaches in class and on top of that, she has an attitude problem.Not worth my time. If you like a teacher that does not teach and makes spanish boring, take her.

She's an okay teacher, but if you're planning on asking her for help with anything, forget it. She's very unapproachable and even rude sometimes!

Her teaching is completly random.I took Spanish all thru out highschool,so I took it as a refresher,so I know how it should be taught.She teaches -ar and -ir verbs about 1 month apart.basically it's hard to see the correlation in her teaching.She'll ask you randomly to take note of something random.She isn't very approachable either,kinda stuck up.

Awful, awful, awful. That's all I have to say. She has NO CLUE how to teach a language. Not to mention, she is boring, and has a really cold demeanor. AND on top of all of that, there's an attendance policy which will kick your butt if you hate her class as much as I do.

I took Spanish in high school and decided that I wanted to pursue it, so I took SPAN 1002 thinking that I'd need to freshen my memory. I learned absolutely nothing from her. I found her class a joke and have little respect for her as a teacher. It's an easy class, but you won't learn anything.
