spn 1130 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

sweet lady, horrible teacher. She speaks in spanish 99% of the time. Which to me is annoying and a bit much for a spanish 1 class. Other than that the course is pretty straight forward and shouldn't be too hard.

She's a kind-hearted person and a knowledgeable professor, though she will pick on you sometimes. Class is fun and tests are easy. Couple of them are online, so they're like free A's.

SPN1131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Lot's of homework via myspanishlab, quizzes in class, test in class and online, compositions in class, presentation, and oral exam. Very hard to understand her as she goes fast even if no one in the class understands. I got an A in the class but had to study like crazy. Do yourself a favor, choose another teacher.

A very sweet and smart professor. She goes out of her way to make sure that you understand everything, and her online homework is extremely easy. She reviews for her test and tells you everything on it, and even gives u a weekend to prepare for each composition. Such an easy A. I'm taking her for SPN1131

Great professor and easy class. She doesn't expect fluency after the first semester of Spanish and is lenient when you make mistakes.

The sweetest prof. I've ever had! She really cares about her students and makes an effort to know everyone by name. Really wants you to get an A and takes pride in her work when she notices students trying. She wants you to learn Spanish and do well, and she'll stop at nothing to help you! Super easy and a wonderful experience.

She is very sweet though she is very slow in getting your grades up because she can't seem to use a computer very well, but she helps you if you've been there the whole semester and she can tell you're trying. I'm definitely taking her again for SPN 1131

SPN1130 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Amazing professor. Very helpful. She wants everyone to get an A in her class and she'll definitely help you do so. There is a lot of homework in this class and attendance is mandatory, but every spanish teacher is the same when it comes to that. Exams are super easy as long as you know at least a tiny bit of spanish.

This professor goes above and beyond the call of duty. She is fully interested in the success of her students. She will go out nof her way, beyond the call of duty to help her students. If you are non native speaking, you will know how to speak it when she is finished with you. She is a nice person, and is the same with all students. +recomend.

Very easy class, but it didn't seem that way to me at first. She doesn't really teach, but do online work and at least try & you should get an A. But if you're not fluent in Spanish, you probaby won't understand what she's saying.

Easy A. You don't even have to know spanish. She personally is really kool but is a terrible teacher. Don't come expecting to learn any spanish. I took this class wanting to learn, didn't and was dissapointed. So again, take her for the A, not for the lesson.

I love Ms. Garcia, she's like a sassy little grandma. If you attend class and atleast try to learn spanish, then you will receive and A in the class. There IS alot to do on webct and quia, but she REALLY helps you out with it.
