SPA 201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

TAKE THIS CLASS!! You'll love going because he is a great teacher and he tries to keep it interesting by joking about the material. It's overall not a very hard class. There's 3 tests (one is the final) and not very much homework assigned. He is pretty laid back during the whole class. You'll love him. -Adios ;)

Professor Taylor is in his 70's, and has been teaching a long time. If you want to learn, show up to class and pay attention. If you are struggling, approach him. He really loves what he does and it comes across in his teaching style. (also does his lengthly career, as he can be caught repeating a story or 2) Take it, put in effort, get an A.

SPA102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Very nice guy, makes the culture interesting. Terrible at explaining grammar. Emphasizes speaking and vocabulary, participation important. Follows book exactly. No quizzes, moderate tests, Vistas for practice only, and one oral exam. If you're expecting to speak Spanish, this is probably not the class for you unless you're super motivated.

Do not take a class with him if you want to learn any Spanish. If you're just trying to fulfill a requirement, he is very easy. Completely useless for trying to learn the language.

Easy class. He doesn't want anyone to fail so as long as your oral exam is good he'll probably give you a B.

SPA201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is a very funny guy however he is more interested in his tangents in class then truly teaching. If you talk to him and try to negotiate, he's pretty flexible. I should have had a F but talked to him and pulled through with a B.

Great teacher, laid back he makes class fun with life stories but also teaches you Spanish very clear. Show up to class and you will get a good grade. He doesn't give homework he simply ask you to review the pages you go over in class very easy! Test are easy as well, he gives you hints for the test it's your responsibility to study them.

Sr. Taylor is a very nice person but do not take this class if you want to learn.I have taken him for all my espanol.I would be a fool to take a different instructor at this point.I think homework is important in grasping a foreign language.Repetiton is important.He is a very nice man but his stlye of teaching is to laid back.
