SPAN 2001
Intermediate Spanish
5*****
Pros: - BEST PROFESSOR EVER!



- BEST PROFESSOR EVER!



- Grades fairly and understands that learning a new language is very tricky.



- Makes class interesting and tells nice stories from time to time.
Cons: - It's a 5:45 class...
Dr. Carvallo is by far one of the best professors in the Foreign Language department. He understands that learning a new language is difficult and is a very lenient grader. He's here for us to actually learn; not trying to fail students.

SPAN 3010
Spanish Conversation and Composition
5*****
Pros: AMAZING teacher! Super easy. All the tests are quizzes you take at home. You have 3 tries on every quiz, and they are times for 15 minutes each, and have a few days to do them.You have 2 tries on the tests, and they are timed for 25 minutes, and also have a few days to do them. You have a few compositions you have to write over the semester, but after you hand it in, he circles your mistakes and gives them back to you to change before he grades them. Also, there are a few presentations, where you have to talk about your compositions to the class for 2-5 minutes and basically summarize what you wrote about. If you try, you will get a 100, or a 98 or something.He's very funny and likes to make class interesting! 100% recommend him for a great class and easy A

5*****
Pros: 3 Oral Exams, 4 Writing Exercises that the Orals are based on. They are super fun topics too! He says he gives As to those who simply come to class and complete assignment regardless of the grade on individual assignments.
Cons: MUST attend class (only 3 absences allowed but he is VERY understanding)!
I learned so much about life & the world from this class! I loved the movies we watched and really enjoyed Carvallo as a person as well as a teacher! HIGHLY recommend!

Pros: So easy

Online Quizzes and Exams

Lets you work with others on everything

Corrects Compositions for you

Fun

Personable

Cons: Doesn't follow a syllabus for dates
I love him so much! He's so funny and witty and genuinely wants to make class interesting (and makes it so it's easy to get an A)!

TAKE HIM. Put a little effort in and you'll easily have a 97 before the final (which is online and only 10% of your grade)

5*****
Pros: Great Teacher, Makes Class Interesting, Funnt
Cons: Late class because he teaches high school, Graded Attentandance
Took Dr. Carvallo for Span 1110 & 2001, he gave two at home replacement tests for two of the four tests. Graded oral exams, in-class tests, & writing assignments very loosely. Just try hard and go to class and guaranteed good grade. Its a crappy time but the grade is well worth the bad time.

Spanish Conversation and Composition
5*****
Pros: So funny and an easy grader!
Cons: The class doesn't follow the schedule he gives you at the beginning. He tends to do things on his own timing. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but if you are a stickler for a schedule it will bother you.
Great teacher! I would recommend him to anyone! He is such a comedian and he isn't too hard on grades. He doesn't like to follow a schedule though.

SPAN 3010
Spanish Conversation and Composition
5*****
Pros: Great Teachers. Easy grader. Funny guy. Interesting assignments.
Cons: Late Class Time
He focuses more on you actually learning Spanish instead just trying to make an A. To do that he puts less emphasis on letter grades on more improvement and effort. His class are later in the day and that only because he teaches high school during the day. Overal best Spanish teacher I've had at UGA.
