Span 201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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

span101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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.

SPAN402 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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

Span402/502/604 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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.

Span 210 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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.
