She is a hard grader and I never felt prepared for the tests. I didnt feel she stayed to her syllabus. She would assign homework but never formally collect it. She would assign online homework, but not tell us. You are allowed to miss 3 total classes the whole semester which is okay but even if I am sick and unable to attend she was not flexible

One of the worst, most unorganized professors ever. She said she'd hand out a syllabus with due dates and total points by week two and then never did, even after I contacted her several times requesting them. She is condescending much of the time, rarely gives decent advance on when things are due, and often takes days to email you back.

Senora contag is a very knowledgeable prof. She actually gets to know her students, and will take time outside of class to help. The class is very helpful if you plan on majoring in spanish. I have heard that she is the best prof in the spanish department.

She gives a lot of unsolicited advice and can be difficult to understand, she is a nice lady but the only thing that I am learning is how to fail the tests

Class was challenging, mainly paying attention to presentations. She participates somewhat in class discussions but doesnt actually teach anything. she mainly babysits us and gives out challenging tests, which kinda sucks. i know basically no new spanish from the course. plus the grad students suck.

I absolutely enjoyed her class and wish I could take another of hers. She is a lot of fun, very helpful, and you can really tell she loves what she does. I definitely recommend her classes.

Dr. Contag is a wonderful teacher. She really cares about and gets to know her students and doesn't make you feel stupid if you're not perfect in the language. Sometimes her deadlines and assignment details are vague, but she's lenient about it. Span 210 was a challenging class but was also a lot of fun. And no tests!

Nice Lady, cares about her students, and is easy-going about turning in assignments late (mainly because she is a bit vague about due dates). Expects a lot, but that's good. It helps you learn better Spanish at a faster pace.

Was quite difficult. Had way too high of expectations. Her tests were impossible. She is obsessed with her style of teaching spanish, which was terrible. Very nice lady, but terrible at teaching.

well i have never taken spanish before taking this class(elementary spanish). I was one of two people in the class who hasn't. If it is the lowest level at the university why should that be. I was so lost it was terrible. She basically blamed me for not studying enough. Terrible experience i think i may try and learn spanish on my own now.

a very energetic class! i enjoyed it, however the homework is not enjoyable because it's hard to know when they are due.. so ask questions!! one more thing - if you need a rigid atmosphere, do NOT take this teacher! she is logical in teaching, but not in the ordinary sense!

this class is very hard. contag tries to fully emerse you in spanish but it doesn't work for 50 minutes 4 days a week. she also is not very well organized and it hurts your grade because she doesn't tell you that things are due, like ever.

Only reason I got an A was my French ability. Took class when new GLL was unavailable, and my speaking level of Spanish is horrendous. Language immersion works only when actually in the culture, not staring at a banana for an hour per day.
