"Assignments galore" "Gives good feedback" "Would take again"

Sra. Farcau is one of the sweetest professors I've ever had. She loves to teach, and she knows each of her students by name. She loves it when students come to her during office hours. Be warned, though. Make sure that you do all of the homework assignments (about 20 hours worth each week), and that you prepare for all assignments.

Sra. Farcau is one of my favorite teachers of all time. She is very helpful and has a great sense of humor. She is very big on following the rules but if you follow them, you should be just fine. She loves to crack jokes and knows each one of her students by name. Definitely would recommend her to anyone.

Farcau is amazing. She loves teaches spanish, and has such a passion for it. There are several things required from the university which are annoying, but you can tell she wishes she could teach her own way. She's there for you if you have a problem and is very lenient. I loved her course and would take her again and again!

This was my most dreaded course. It had been 3 years since I took Spanish 1 and I had forgotten everything. This teacher however is amazing. If you have any concerns ever just talk to her. I would suggest any student who fears foreign language like I do to take her.

Wonderful professor! Show that you care and work hard and she will do everything she can to help you succeed. She loves when you volunteer to answer questions, so raise your hand whenever you can even if you're not sure about the answer (she likes that you try anyway). One of the sweetest and most lovable professors I've ever had.

Mari-Cruz is probably the most genuine and nice teacher I've ever had. I really dreaded this class but she made it worth it. There is a lot a of participation involoved but how else are you going to learn the language? The university didn't renew her contract so hopefully she doesn't leave bc I'm coming back in the fall for espanol II. TAKE HER!

She is a wonderful teacher. She tries to scare you the first day but she's really nice. Just go to class. I'm not saying its easy but it is doable and she's willing to help if you ask. I really liked her class.

Professor Farcau is one of the most kindest professor I have ever met. She truly cares about her students learning not only the language but the spanish culture. There is a lot of work invovled in this class most of it online, but your grade will reflect the amount of work you put in. Class can be very repetitive, but is pretty much mandatory.

Prof. Farcau is AWESOME!! I just loved her. She is one of the nicest professors I have had at UCF. She really wants her students to succeed. If you want a great Spanish teacher, then take her class.

Farcau is arguably one of the best professors I've had at college. Remember that this class is more than learning the Spanish language; it's also learning about the Spanish world. She does an outstanding job of teaching both aspects aforementioned. She expects a lot at times, but if you participate and make a real effort, she'll reward you.

She is nice, but not a good teacher IMO. A typical day in class is she has the class read examples from the book. Most of the time our class didn't know what was going on because she just says, "Do this" without explaining what to do. If you can teach yourself another language then take her, but if you can't find someone else.

ABSOLUTE CAKE WALK!!!!!!! Take her class, you will not regret it! Fabulous teacher. She goes above and beyond to help her students. Attendance is mandatory but she makes the class interesting and she's funny so you will genuinely want to go. I had taken spanish in high school and learned more in one semester than I did in 3 years. TAKE HER CLASS!

Senora Farcau is wonderful! Her interest in her students really makes her worth taking. She does her best to help her students and teaches in a way that is both fun and you will learn! It is not the easiest class and many take it "cause they have to" and she knows this and does her best to pique your interest in the subject! Muy bien profesora!
