He is a great teacher, brings his dog Chico to class (adorable) He is a great guy who really is concerned with the fact that your Spanish improves. Tough but makes sure no one falls between the cracks

Comment:
I have never felt more ambiguous about a human being in my life. He can be nice, but be prepared to have your intelligence insulted on a daily basis. oh and try really hard not to laugh when he teaches you words for arrogant because he'll be describing himself. Otherwise, great guy!

Comment:
His Larra class is a ton of reading, and you will learn about Larra for sure. Gies's enthusiasm is inspiring, but there should be a limit on how much students teach. He is paid to teach grad students, not mediate our conversations. He basically stops teaching after week 2. He grades final papers fairly and will work with you.

Nice guy, great class, yet disorganized. I feel like my Spanish is better, yet I was frustrated with feeling lost with his expectations.

Comment:
A great class, all spanish majors should try to take it at some point. However, don't take it if your command of Spanish is bad or if you are a sensitive person, because he is tough and will constantly critique you. Great guy though, has everyone over to his house for dinner.

This class was the easiest, and most superficial. If you want not to work at all, take his cinema class.
