Comment:
She is a very nice person and will ask how you are doing and if you need help. Unfortunately it is a lot of homework, memorization, and self teaching. She expects you to be going over French everyday and there are constantly tests, where you have to memorize a lot of vocab and translate entire sentences into French and spell everything correctly.

If you are not good at a language I suggest you take a different professor. Shes a very nice person, however, there is an exam every single class. She will tell you to switch to a different class if you fail the first exam, and she expects you to teach yourself the material. I dropped out of the class two weeks in, I also dropped my Spanish minor

Comment:
Tells students to teach themselves and then screams at students that she doesnt know why she works harder than them. She is AWFUL. Told students to take someone else who matches their level of understanding. Extremely insulting. Screams at the class. Expects students to memorize stuff for an exam on a one day notice. Solid -10000000/10.

Blandino is the best.I would recommend her to anyone. The Spanish class is a lot of work, but you need to work to learn a language. Notes are on the board, so you better come to class. Some say she is a bit scattered, but you just have to pay attention. She is hysterical and loves her students like they were her own. I'd take her a million times.

Dr. Blandino was by far my favorite professor this semester. She is a bit scattered with her ideas, but she is clear on deadlines in the syllabus. She is very accessible outside of class, and she is easy to get along with. I am taking her again next semester because she makes Spanish easy and fun to learn. I would definitely recommend her!

Dr. Blandino made me love Spanish even more when I had her. She's always engaging with her students and truly cares about them. She's pretty homework-happy and kinda scattered when it comes to exams but if you just ask her, she won't bite. The material is fairly easy, just need to memorize a lot. I recommend her to everyone.

Dr. Blandino was a fantastic professor! Her lectures are awesome because she's so funny during them. If you know some French then this class will not be too hard at all. The exams are honestly fairly easy and the homework is too!

Dr. Blandino's class is quick paced, so make sure you pay attention! It's all memorization, but not too hard. The most difficult part of the class is knowing when your next test is because Dr. Blandino is scatterbrained and can be a bit unclear.

I had Dr. Blandino for review Spanish, Spanish I and Spanish II. She is a great teacher and is very nice. One thing I do not like is how test happy she is. Expect a test or quiz once a week. She can be hard to follow at times because she tries to get everything covered in time but as long as you stay on top of studying you'll be fine.

What can I say about Blandino? She is the sweetest most caring professor on campus. She is always trying to help her students pass the class. She recognizes when students are putting in genuine effort and has a good relationship with all students. Her grading is very fair and pushes her students to study like no other. She is basically mom!!!

Love this woman! Took parts 1 and 2 of Spanish over the 6 week summer course and loved every minute. She worked with me outside of class without any questions asked and made it very clear that anytime anyone had any questions to please contact her. If she sees you putting in the effort she will take note even if she doesn't say anything.

Blandino can be a wild card. She has always been helpful when I needed it but I have also seen her give other students a hard time. She gives a lot of exams and quizzes (seriously, like at least once a week) but she does grade fairly and sometimes gives bonus. Overall, if you're just fulfilling a language requirement you can survive it.

Very hard to follow...spends too much time trying to 'cover the material' and not teach. If you ask for help she repeats the same things over and over. Exams are tricky and puts far too much information on them not covered in class. Don't take her unless you absolutely have to.

She is amazing. I had her as an advisor for a while, and she was just as helpful then as she is in class. You get a good bit of homework, but if you do it (or most of it) you will understand everything, and her grading system is very fair. Overall, an amazing teacher!

Dr.Blandino is an excellent professor. She is very nice and easy to talk to and very, very funny. I enjoyed her class very much so. I would recommend her if you are serious about learning the language. Tests can be challenging but her quiz procedure is rewarding. My choice over and over again.

French blows, but its not Dr. Blandino's fault. Class could be a lot worse, but she keeps it bare-able.
