SPAN 115 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A-

Make sure you attend class, arrive on time, and participate, because he will subtract from your grade if you don't. He is extremely helpful and gives out study guides, so as long as you study all the material and complete homework you will get an A! Lots of quizzes and tests to keep you on track, so the cumulative final is no big deal.

SPAN 210 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Really enjoyed the course. Lots of helpful handouts that the other profs don't give. He gives participation points, so show up to class. I don't like the oral presentations, but would recommend this prof otherwise.

SPAN 110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Enjoyed Prof Planas' class and hope to take him for Span 210. Returns grades quickly. Has a great sense of humor if you're on his good side- do your work, participate in class, and you'll be fine. There were 2 oral presentations that I didn't like, and hated the Centro online stuff, but it helped me learn.

SPAN110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Professor Planas is the best foreign language teacher I've ever had. He simplifies each concept and gives tons of handouts and worksheets (all of his own making) to reinforce concepts. There's fair amount of homework in the textbook, workbook and online (all of which is a departmental requirement). Tests are straightforward and he reviews for them.

SPAN110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I love Professor Planas & all of my classmates would agree! I was nervous going into this 6 credit course, but it turned out much better than I expected. Being in the class from 9:30-11:20 3 days a week was not easy, but he kept the class entertained & made learning spanish fun! I will be taking him for spanish 210 as well! Planas is the way to go!

Keep in mind a 6 cr course is a lot of work. He didn't care when u turned an assignment in,long as u turned did. He is nice & funny & will work with you, but a little high strung.I stopped asking him ?'s b/c he never answered them clearly possibly b/c he never waited for me to finish my ?, which was frustrating, but he wants to help..Passing is EZ

He's a great teacher. He expects you to put in as much work as he does into teaching and grading (which he is quick with). If you do no get something, ASK! He will answer questions and help you out if you ask for it. Class participation is a must. Do not take him if you are not a fan or speaking in class or a professor who is a jokerster.

SPAN110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Pretty good professor. If I hadn't taken spanish in high school then this class would have been fairly difficult. He doesn't write stuff on the board so you have to ask him. He tries to get you to participate. He has a good sense of humor, but sometimes it's hard to catch since its spanish. He is a very good guy. I'd take him again

He keeps class interesting by interaction, he is very helpful and punctual with returned work. He is one of the best teachers I have had in college thus far. I am switching my schedule to take his 210 class, I highly recommend him. Just show up and try, and you will get a good grade.

SPAN115 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Unfair grading on compositions: if you don't say something the way he would say it, regardless of whether it is correct, he will say it's wrong. Even if you make his changes for the next composition, he'll change his mind and mark it wrong again. Great at speaking clearly during class and involving all students to make sure no one is behind!

Span202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

great guy love that he is a native and he knows what he is teaching. he can tell when people try to BS him because he asks comprehensive questions and you will look stupid if you dont kno what he is really saying. I laugh because i kno he is semi-insulting students that think they can pass by saying si or no or no sé. he is very patient also.

Planas is the best Spanish professor ever. Plus every 202 class has the same syllabus...so you might as well do the same work as everybody else, just with a great professor.

EXTREMELY nice guy, easy grader, very helpful. He also has a good sense of humor. He's also very laid back...his cell phone will go off quite a few times during the semester, so don't worry if yours does too!

He is really understanding and let's you make up quizzes and things that you miss, he's an easy grader, funny...I wasn't looking forward to taking this class but it really wasn't so bad.
