Span 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A+

He is a great guy! He knows spanish and spanish history like the back of his hand. He is dependable on what you will go over in class, he follows the book closely. He asks for participation from the students. I recommend him if you have a background in basic spanish. Those in my class that didn't have a background have struggled. LOVE his class

Span101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Jose is from mexico so he is very fluent & knows the language well, however, than doesnt make you a great Span prof. If you leave early=1 absence. Attendance 15% of grade no matter how well you do. 3/4 of class dropped. If you have 0 experience in Span, take someone else, he might be too advanced for you. Tests are short.

Lets u drop lowest test. Expect the tests to mirror the Chapter Exam in book. Tests are straight-forward, not sneaky test questions! Final is Chap 6 & 1-5. Teacher is fun, and would have taken him again if I needed Span 102. Would totally recommend!!!

He is an amazing teacher. He can be hard and if you don't study the test will kill you. Keep up with the material and you will do fine. He is extremely knowledgeable of the language and the culture. He is a really good teacher.

A GREAT instructor! Lots of HW, but it helps you. He's helpful. He wants you to do well. He's passionate about his culture. He tells you what's on the test, drils the class before the test,in hopes you get an A. Dicipline yourself early to get an A. I didn't, but I got a B, which is still good.

Very interesting professor, a little hard to understand, but gives all the information you need to do well in the class. Lots of knowledge about Latin history and root of various languages. Highly recommended

He is great, was very understanding of "dumb"questions. He has a lot of small ways of making things make sense and his stories make the culture sink in. He taught the 5 week course, and made it fun to go to class daily. Online work was given points for participation, not for score, and only required a small daily assnmts. Great test study guides.

He loves to talk it's easy to distract him to talk about other topics besides spanish. He is really big into group work. Be prepared to participate. He does seem a little irritated if you don't pronounce all the words correctly. He is ALWAYS late - sometimes he will come in at the very very last second! He will take attendence after break!
