FLSP 3020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B

Teaches straight out of the book, so definitely read it. Because this course material is all grammar it can get confusing quickly. He doesn't give the best explanations, the book helps a lot. A heavier workload but do-able. Online homework counts as a big part of the grade, I recommend to take it MWF not TT, he will use all the time, it gets long.

Very interesting class. Be prepared for tons of new vocabulary and a lot of textbook/workbook assignments and activities. Use the study guides for the tests. He will use the full amount of allotted time for every class. Loved the professor and the class, it's just a tremendous amount of work.

He was an awesome phonetics teacher! The class was challenging, but he made it pretty entertaining. Do the homework and try to talk in class and you'll be fine.

It took me a while before I got the hang of exactly what he was doing. You either get how to do it or you don't. It's a hit or miss class. Luckily something clicked for me about half way through so i pulled out a B. He's a very nice and helpful guy

Great teacher for phonetics. The content of the course was somewhat interesting and he taught it in easy to understand spanish. I would recommend the class to a spanish minor/major looking for an elective.

I thoroughly enjoyed this class and Mr. Z. I found him to be very helpful and he genuinely cares about his students doing well. He has a wonderful accent and expanded my vocabulary significantly! He is a funny guy and very easy to listen to and interact with! I'm glad I took his class...just make sure you go!

Aunque tuve que leer mucho para su clase, vale la pena. Fue muy interesante la clase, y aprendi mucho acerca de una literatura que a mi no me interesa mucho. Viva Z-dog!

I enjoyed his grad class much better than his undergrad classes. Although the material isn't always very interesting, he prepares you well for his section of the comps.

Very easy to understand. He has an AMAZING accent which was very helpful in this class. The only work you have are transcriptions and recordings, and a midterm and final. You have to go to class b/c the info is important!

Civ 1 was interesting. We were assigned ppt. projects that were due in just two days! Yikes! It was like he knew we were going to procrastinate anyway! You read mostly midieval stuff in his lit class. That's his specialty. He gets more cool points for being the drummer for the Auburn Knights.
