Comment:
Luckily I have taken Spanish in high school or else I would have been lost. I had amazing Spanish teachers and Mrs. Lyman shouldn't even be called a teacher. She does not explain things well to students and lets her students walk all over her. I don't suggest her unless you have experience.

Lyman is a nice woman. Yet, she sometimes doesn't make sense. The tests are easy. Just have to show up to class and listen to pass the class.

I did not like her teaching methods. She does not teach out of the book. She gets behind in class and students suffer for it. I did everything in the class and she gave me a D.

She has a wonderful personality, but she is not a helpful teacher. I've heard that if she likes you then you don't have to worry about your grade, but as far as teaching you the actual language>>this is not a helpful class!

I love Mrs. Lyman! She's a great teacher, very fun, friendly, and intellegent. She uses a variety of teaching methods to reach everyone's learning styles. Learning any new language is difficult, but Lyman does a great job making it happen. Her tests are difficult - but, this is college - get over it. (If you study it's not a problem anyway.)

Okay. If there is anyone who didn't take high school Spanish or hasn't been exposed to a lick of Spanish in years. DON'T TAKE HER CLASS!!! She's good at clarifying some spansih that you're already familiar with, but she expects a little much out of her students that don't know any spanish. If you don't know any spanish,take another teacher, please.

I came into this class not really knowing any spanish at all. This was a very tough class for me. She grades very hard on all her tests, so for anyone interested in taking this class, just be wary this.

She is an awesome person and teacher. She is fair and consistent and maybe too nice. Knows the subject and teaches it well. GREAT ATTITUDE! I think the class goes fast because of the requirements of the college, not her. Having prior spanish is helpful, otherwise you have to really work, but this is a 5 unit class, so ya gotta deal with it.

She is a very funny person. She moves very quickly, by the end of the class you will have to look back and wonder what the heck you learned,over all it is worth your time and money. She is a very nice and flexible teacher. She lets you drop one of your tests and gives great review before each exam.
