SPN1120C Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A
"There for you" "Gives good feedback" "Participation matters"

Best Spanish teacher at UCF. Really cares about her students and wants them to not only pass, but learn. Yes, there is lots of online work, but what do you expect when you're trying to learn another language? Repetition is necessary. Lots of interesting in-class participation. You really do learn a lot and I'm sad I cannot take her for SPN1121.

SPN 1120 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is extremely nice. Normally she does not accept late assignments, but will occasionally make exceptions. I dreaded learning spanish, but she has made it pretty easy to transition to.

SPN 1121C Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Profesora Korosy is nice, knowledgeable & fair--if you do the homework & online modules, at least try to participate in class & aren't disrespectful you'll do just fine. Class was educational & often fun. She's not a native speaker, but to be honest learning from non-native speakers seems to help the transition when starting a new language. (:

SPN 1121C Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Nice person, but extremely unorganized. She sometimes takes attendance but no one goes to class because it's a free for all and there's no real lesson plan. She assigns a lot of homework and most of your grade is determined by your ability to write essays! Avoid this class.

Took her Spanish 1 Honors course. She was an amazing teacher. Grading is mostly based off of participation so you need to attend class. Makes class fun and interesting. Really cares about her students. Received an A in the class while missing a quiz and several assignments and some hw.

Took her Honors. Great teacher who really cares about the students. Doesn't really put a high priority on grades. She wants you to learn, and loves it when you come to her office hours! Great teacher

One of the best Professors I've taken. She is very enthusiastic about Spanish, is very fair, cares about students, and makes the class interesting. There are in class quizzes, online and in-class tests, essays (big part of the grade), oral activities (graded fairly leniently), in class activities that require participation, and weekly hws.

SPN1121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Professor Korosy is very helpful and easygoing. However, there is a very large amount of homework given that can prove difficult to keep up with if you have a busy schedule.

I'M TAKING THIS CLASS NOW AND HATE IT!!! SHE DOESN'T EXPLAIN THINGS CORRECTLY AND THERE IS WAYYY TOO MUCH HOMEWORK. SHE TAKES FOUR DAYS TO ANSWER EMAILS AND YOU HAVE TO BUY THE BOOK & PASSCODE OR YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING! SHE DOESN'T WANT TO ASK QUESTIONS, SHE TELLS YOU TO ASK YOUR CLASSMATES AND YOU BETTER PRAY THEY UNDERSTOOD! THIS CLASS IS AWFUL!

SPN2201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

My favorite UCF prof so far. Class was unconventional and fun. Activities highly interactive and often hilarious. You might be "robbed" in class by spanish speaking banditos with squirt guns, or film spanish soap operas, or play bingo in spanish. Online homework time-consuming but not difficult. Otherwise grade is based on effort and participation.

SPN2200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She really engages her students in her lessons. I learned a lot of more conventional spanish in here class than I feel I would in other classes. Weekly homework, but it's not bad. She is always willing to help you if you don't understand and is just really enjoyable to take a class with. She is really understanding and she never makes a class dull.

She is an awesome teacher. Her class is pretty easy (but I had taken 3 years of Spanish in high school), but her class is also fun. She is lenient as far as grading, and she really cares about her students. I would definitely take her class again.

SPN1101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Amazing! She is very helpful. She will sometimes assign something due next class, but half the time doesn't grade it (you never know which ones she will, so do them all). Finals are interesting (not in a bad way) and if you go to class and participate you can easily get an A. Overall, it was a fun class to take!

Don't take her. She doesn't teach very often, just makes you play games in her class. You have to learn it yourself in the book otherwise you're screwed.

The semester hasn't ended yet but I just want to say that so far, she's amazing. I love her lectures. She knows how to communicate at a friendly, approachable level. Sometimes professors can be intimidating but with her, I feel safe in asking any questions that I have about the class. She's a good person and an excellent professor.

SPN1120 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 top 5 teachers i've EVER had!! She is easy because she makes spanish fun and has the skills necessary to still facilitate learning... BUT, you still need to put fourth the effor to get an "A"..... To put it this way, I waited a whole year to take Spanish II, just so i could take it with her....

The greatest professor ever. I really didn't like spanish, but now I actually understand it. She makes learning so much fun. Class requires effort, because there are homework and quizzes, no EC. Overall, the best class I have taken at UCF!!!!

She is a very easy teacher, and she is way too nice. She's so easy that she doesn't even give grades. If you go to class, participate, and show that you are interested, you will get an A. There is no final...our "final" is a paragraph on what grade we deserve. Even if you are terrible at Spanish, take her!
