I'm not a Spanish-person. I still can barely speak it, but Rickman is willing to work with you. He grades very easy.

He's hilarious! You may not think so at first, but pay attention. Smart man, fair tests, great lessons. You get the feeling that he knows the book is cheesy, but won't admit it. His handwritten handouts are hard to read (typewriter?!?), but they fit his personality. Very old school. You'll learn a lot if you do the work (and you should).

tests for this class is very easy. he gives you a study guide with everything on it. tests compared to other spanish teachers is really easy because most of the test is multiple choice plus couple short answers. old but very chill teacher. you dont even have to do the homework because he never checks it. as long as you know your vocab you straight.

This is my second semester taking spanish with Rickman...he's very well paced with the material and very thorough with it as well. If you want to actually learn Spanish, and do well, I strongly recommend Sr. Rickman.

Only teacher I've had who made Spanish seem ridiculously easy. I started out very lost because I hadn't had any spanish in about four years, but he caught me up quickly and I'm sure it'll be a cinch to get an A. He's a stickler for participation which is actually very helpful. Recommended.

Senor Rickman is eccentric, but amusing to watch. A good teacher and gives extra help. Is an older man so his teaching is more traditional. Recomended.
