Comment:
I took this class online and it was difficult, but manageable. Definitely a lot of assignments due each week plus there are two group projects for the semester, which was interesting since it was online. Having said that, it still is better than taking a language class in person especially if youre like me and struggle with Spanish.

This is the worst professor I have ever taken. Do not take her. If you want to learn about Spanish then you won't in her class. She expects everyone to know what she is saying and assumes we are all fluent in Spanish. She looks at you like you are stupid if you ask a question. HORRIBLE professor.

I took this class online cause I thought it wouldn't be too bad, but let me tell you, this class is difficult! Theres assignments twice a week and its not even just one assignment, there are plenty. They're very time consuming. Theres a test every couple of weeks for the chapter too. Also, she had us do group assignments for an online class.

I took 102 before thi online class, Glad i did! If you're used to Spanish and are fluent and a native speaker, take this class online. I feel like the work was overwhelming and was just the usual, just thought a lot of work was given. Other than that, the instructor seemed super chill and nice.4 Exams, 1 group project, 4 chapter assignments not bad

She is not one to give you a break if you are falling behind. She accepts you to spend every waking moment studying spanish so if you have a job forget it

Not a helpful professor. Expects you to be at a level that does not match with what lower level spanish professors on this campus are teaching. Doesn't care about how you do as an individual.

This teacher expects you to be a native speaker, grades extremely hard and assigns a ton of homework and be able to do it in 1 - 3 days. i talked to her outside of class to figure out if i could improve my grade but all she said i need to have better time management, even when i told her i was doing 15 h/days, it was as if she didn't even care.

Comment:
Sometimes she can be pretty nice, and then she does something that reminds me why I didn't like her. If you just talk to her she isn't too bad. The students who don't make an effort are the ones she isn't nice to. She tends to make fun of students. But the class itself isn't very hard; online homework twice a week and a test every other week.

This instructor is known throughout the school as one of the instructors who is most likely to cause student suicides. She is impatient, rude, unhelpfull and has an obvious hate for teaching. This instructor should find another job, she clearly hates teaching people spanish.

She is a bit tough, but she conveys the material and expects the students to know it. You really come out of the class learning a lot. She is a great teacher and she is patient, helpful and offers extra credit! Go to every class, study the vocab and verbs and you will pass!

I liked that this class was online. She is a very nice professor and offers extra credit. I didn't really like the online chats too much, but the class wasn't that bad.

I find it hilarious that she is from Germany (thick accent and all) and she's teaching Spanish. Easy class, i slept through most of it and still passed.

I had her for my first two semesters. I got B's both times. Show up, do your homework and lab books and study for the tests and you will be fine.

she is a crap-tacular professor...she talks REALLY fast, so for all you beginning spanish students, try to take someone else and save her for the higher levels...she is, however, very knowledgable...so if you have a question about spanish, she most likely will kno the answer...
