"Skip class? You won't pass." "Participation matters" "Get ready to read"

I LOVE HER!!! She expects you to study and know the material before class. Class participation is very important but she's very helpful and informative and if you pay attention and show up every day you'll do fine.

SPA102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: C

She expects a lot out of her students. I took this class not knowing what to expect, and i did ok. I got a C. Her tests are more difficult than they needed to be. I felt like i was prepared for a lot of tests, and some tests were challenging. If you are a good spanish student, i would take her class because then maybe it would be good for you.

Easy A. just do my spanishlab and get a 100 because you have unlimited tries. 4 tests and a final. drops lowest test grade. highly recommend taking online course if you know some Spanish from highschool if not it will be difficult.

The kindest professor I’ve ever had. Very respectful. I absolutely love her, she knows a lot and teaches in a clear way. Took her Spanish/ Bilingual class and she made me understand and love the culture of my ancestors. Be sure to study and Go to class! Participation is extremely important for her! Do not pass up a chance to take a class with her.

Learned a lot from this class. You have to be very prepared (do your homework) before going to class or you will be embarrassed. Every student has to answer a question from the homework in class. You have to bring your textbooks everyday. Very nice person always available to help.

SPA101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Took online course. You do most of the work through the online "workbook". She answered emails quickly and sent out a weekly review before the tests. You have to be able to learn and your own, and it isn't easy, but I really liked her. She is a stickler for spelling and accent marks, but it's all part of the language.

SPAN102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

For a Beginner's class it is very hard. I took spanish for many years before taking her class but she is really pushy and gets annoyed when you get something wrong. She expects everyone to speak fluently with a wide vocabulary and memorized the day before we actually learn in class. Expects too much out of students at such a beginner level.

sp101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Do every assignment, study hard for the tests (one spelling mistake takes your answer down by half) and always be awake and ready to jump right into the days work. She is helpful but very difficult. Especially if you're shy.

SPA101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I took this class online. As an online teacher she is horrible. She won't reply to email's, and her study guides aren't that helpful. PLUS she makes NUMEROUS spelling mistakes, but if you make one spelling error, you only get half credit. If you can teach yourself, then I would take this class, if not, don't.

This woman was not a good teacher. you literally have to teach yourself. and if you dont understand then she picks on you and made the class a living hell. i dropped out! if you can teach yourself which all these good comments can then great. if not then dont bother taking her!

dude, some of these negative comments are so wrong. Yes there's studying, hw, and tests but hello?? That's school. Welcome to college. Just do all the hw and you'll do fine. It's not really as hard as some make it. Learning a new language is always hard but she actually made it fun and answered all of my questions. Really, not so hard, recommended.

To be honest, I hated her from the first email she sent me when I was switching into her class. I thought it would be easy and it wasn't easy but I learned alot.. She expects you to do all the homework, take notes on the reading and go to the lab 30 mins a week. BUT she is a really good teacher is you let her teach you and listen to her !

Great Teacher, really sparked my interest in advanced spanish. You have to work in her class. You have to read, and you must be prepared. Beyond that, you will learn something!
