This class is by far the hardest class I've ever taken. The homework load is ridiculous. It almost seems like Dr. Partyka doesn't realize that as a student, you do have other classes besides Spanish. She tries to push you, which is good, however it appears that she forgets that not every student is fluent in Spanish.

Never take any of her classes. She is totally unrealistic about the amount of reading she wants students to do, plays favorites, grades poorly, does not understand or speak Spanish at the graduate level, and native speakers need to correct her all the time. Just ridiculous and pathetic. Worst professor ever.

This professor is an awful person. Only take her class if you want to be trapped dealing with a professor that offers little to no help in learning the material and demands that you perform like you graduated with a degree in Spanish. She taught me nothing. Also, her grading system makes absolutely no sense and I think is designed to make you fail.

She is very anal and very difficult. We called her the grammer nazi. I say this and I LOVE Spanish. This was the first Spanish class in years that I ever got a B in. I had all A's before.

Wow! She's an amazing teacher but she's tough. In the beginning, you are going to feel overwhelmed but by the end of the quarter, you will truly be amazed at how much you learned in 9 weeks. She has a true passion for the language and the culture!!!!!!!

Not an easy teacher, she makes up for the rest of the Spanish department's leniency. However, she is Oxford-educated and very knowledgable about literature and paraguay, if not much else. Eclectic and fun.
