Comment:
Nice, approachable prof. However, the class is almost a little too easy. I took 7 years of Spanish prior to taking his class here. I admit I probably should not have been in a 200 class. But I did notice that he would often not correct students' Spanish when they made mistakes in their speech. Don't expect to become fluent after this class.

Profe Troiano is the best! He is so genuinely nice, and SO approachable. Just go to class, do the homework and tests (they are minimal), and you will be more than set! He really makes class comfortable. I look forward to going to Spanish more than all of my other class! Gracias, Troiano!

Very nice guy, super easygoing class. Sometimes too easygoing; I completed 5 years of high school spanish with AP and this class was like going back to spanish one. I don't feel like I learned anything...what I knew was reinforced, but it was too easy, I find. Extremely nice professor though, he puts no pressure or anxiety into class or students.

He is one of the best. However, HE IS A STICKLER FOR ATTENDANCE. Do not expect to take this class and skip class a lot, he will notice and send you an email everytime. Beyond that, lecture is usually interesting and funny. Take him if you can.

Great teacher, sometimes I felt like I wasn't learning a ton, but now that the class is over I don't feel like that anymore. I remember what we learned, instead of it going in one ear and out the other. He's fun, pretty easy,and is really interested in seeing the students succeed

He is a great teacher, however you dont learn a lot, because he doesn't really have a system of grading except for giving credits class and pre-lims/exams. But the class is relaxing and easy-going

Great teacher, funny, and interested/ing. Only downside is he is a stickler for attendance, so if you aren't big on going to class, just studying, don't take this one.

Prof. Troiano is a great Spanish teacher! He is the best that I have had here so far, and he makes the class fun! He is interested in making sure everyone understands him before moving on. He seems like an easy grader and a caring teacher.

I cannot say how grateful I am that he is an option here as a Spanish professor. He is very clear, very easygoing and often funny. I actually want to go to Spanish because he makes it worthwhile.
