This course is very interacting! Though they only give brief lessons, what I like about it the most are the activities it offers for you to brush up your skills more. Definitely a good recommendation!

Although it took me a while to warm to the idea of doing peer review exercises, and having to video record and upload work, actually I think this is an important part of the course and really useful.

I loved it! Enjoyed the class and the direction it took. Very creative class. For me it seemed to be positive and upbeat. I needed some major help as this was my very first Spanish class. I could use some explanation on some more rules for verbs. But overall it was great!

Absolutely a wonderful course for beginners who want to understand Spanish and want to speak fluently. The teacher Robert Blake ok is wonderful, makes you understand the vocabulary and the course material easily.

it is a great lesson! But i hope there are more instructions to help us memorize the vocabularies. Also, it will be better if the grammar part can be lengthened and spend more time, give more examples.

I think it was one of the best courses I have pursued. I just feel there should English translation for spanish questions in the quiz for week 1as it is difficult to comprehend in the beginning

This course was very helpful for someone who has never been exposed to a lot of Spanish. It was also easily understandable for someone who does not speak English as a first language.

It's a little challenging especially if you are a complete beginner. However, it will guide you thoroughly and challenge you to seek other sources to add to your learning. I love it!

it is a well structured course. But it definitely not for absolute beginner . For absolute beginner start by pronouncing the Spanish alphabet before moving on the AR IR tener verb.

I didn't like the idea of the final assignment. But, that's just me. I'm sorry : (

I think it should be a voluntary assignment and not a final exam.

Gracias por las clases.

The peer review assignment killed my grade (93.9%) because someone decided to just rate the entire thing zero. Overall, a good course, but make grade corrections available.

I enjoyed taking my 1st course in speaking Spanish, the Teacher Dr. Blake has been very instructive and has enable me to progress to a level I thought I would not attain.

The course is fairly well designed and you can learn a lot, but the evaluation method of being rated by peers is far from perfect and can lead to very faulty evaluations.

This was a pretty good introduction to beginning Spanish. As with any new language, the audio portions were quite difficult. All in all, I felt like I got a good start.

Effective and simple way to learn Spanish. Although the final task can still be improved, I really enjoyed the whole course. The instructor and materials are great.

Thorough with the method of teaching. However, could use practice exercises where the student translates full sentences from English to Spanish and visa versa.

Lots of information, had some experience with Spanish with already so it made it easier. If it was first Spanish class I would have really struggled.

A good course for people who knows a little about Spanish already. Probably must have a prerequisite course of much basic language of Spanish.

Great introductory course, you need some basic grounding to start but that was not an issue for me. Will continue learning on the platform!

Fast paced but good. However, unless I missed something it doesn't cover the verb 'Ir' (to go) which seems like a fundamental omission...

Some parts of this set up are consuming, and there are too many short videos. I think videos should be combined in to thorough lessons.
