SPAN 3010
Spanish Conversation and Composition
5*****
Pros: Really nice guy. He grades easily and is always willing to re explain things. He wants his students to do well.
Cons: Class can be boring
I had him for 2002 and 3010, and I liked him a lot. He's a nice guy and a good teacher who cares about the class. The thing that annoyed me the most about this class and 2002 as well is that he was pretty unorganized at times, although it never caused a huge issue. Overall, he's a great professor and person, and if you want a relaxed 3010 class, definitely take him. We talked in english half the time, and he didn't care.

SPAN 2002
Intermediate Spanish
5*****
Pros: He cares about students. I watched him work with a student EVERY DAY after class to help her LEARN Spanish. He is flexible about HW, but is also a very good professor.
Cons: NONE!!!!
He honestly just seems like a good person and is a very good professor. I have had 3 other Spanish professors at UGA and he is by far the best one I ever had. He posts tons of study guides and gets grades back quickly. Basically he dose everything a professor is supposed to do and then goes beyond that (which is what makes a great professor....great.)



Just take him over anyone else in the Spanish department!

SPAN 3010
Spanish Conversation and Composition
5*****
Pros: LOVE HIM. Such a sweet man. He goes beyond what is necessary to help students be prepared for tests. Brings in food just for fun. Very flexible with homework. Since its an upper level Spanish course, he has more flexibility from the department, and he USES IT. Does things a lot differently (aka easier) than the other professors. Gets grades back SUPER quickly. TAKE HIM.
Cons: Homework tends to pile up about 2 times a semester. But, remember, he's REALLY flexible. A lot of it you don't have to turn in, but its good to do for practice for the tests.

SPAN 2002
Intermediate Spanish
5*****
Pros: Palomino is awesome! He is SUPER easy going and tries really hard to make sure everyone understands everything/is doing well in the class. He's also really lenient and if the class thinks a quiz/lab is difficult, will count it for completion. Never checks homework. Loves when you participate.
Cons: None!!!!!
TAKE HIM!!!

SPAN 2002
Intermediate Spanish
4****
Pros: He is a really nice guy and gives you tons of worksheets and study guides to prepare you for the tests. He is a really fast grader.
Cons: I don't think he is that great of a teacher.
Fernan is a VERY nice man. He is very understanding and will work with you if you are struggling. He provides many resources that help you understand the concepts being covered, but he is not the best at explaining the concepts when in front of the class. I don't think my Spanish has improved at all from this class. He really does care about your success, but he is much better at teaching one on one. He is a fair grader, and he grades assessments really quickly. Overall, if you are looking to really improve your Spanish, I wouldn't recommend him.

SPAN 2002
Intermediate Spanish
4****
Pros: Very interested in helping his students

Realizes that this class may not be the first priority for many students

Accepted late work

Very laid back
Cons: Span 2002 is a standardized course so he doesnt make tests and is limited in his control of the class structure.
I loved this professor! He was very understanding of student's situations and wanted to see everyone do well. He didn't seemed very stressed out and never seemed flustered by students coming in late or missing class.If you missed tests or assignments, he would usually accept them late. However you do have to try for this class or otherwise your grade will suffer

SPAN 2002
Intermediate Spanish
4****
Pros: Awesome teacher! He is probably the nicest person I have ever met and helps students in anyway he can. He is extremely understanding and helpful.
Cons: None. He's a great teacher, great person.
The tests are all uniform for SPAN but he goes above and beyond for reviewing and making sure everyone knows what is on the test and is ready. He wants everyone to understand and is an excellent grader. He gets grades back in a timely fashion and gives students tons of resources to reinforce topics. Take him!!

SPAN 2002

5*****
Pros: Nicest man in the entire world. He genuinely cares about his students and is the best spanish professor out there. If you have a problem with a grade or did not perform well... he will let you retake the test or quiz. He works with you on your grade and gives you updates periodically throughout the semester. Take him as your professor before taking anyone else. I can guarentee you a good grade.

SPAN 3010
Spanish Conversation and Composition
4****
Pros: Really cares about each student (which is easier because of the small class size, but still a good thing).

Easier to understand than most other Spanish professors.

Willing to help.
Cons: It's a tough class, and the fact that he never stays on schedule doesn't help. If you miss a class, you're pretty much screwed if you're only going by the syllabus schedule.

Pros: Professor Cerron is one of the best teachers I've ever had. He truly cares about his students and wants them to succeed in the class. He is very good at explaining grammar, concepts, vocabulary, etc. I would definitely choose Cerron for Spanish 3010.

This was not a difficult class. I learned a lot and Cerron is a great teacher.

SPAN 2002

5*****
Pros: super nice, he really tries to help you learn and understand. he doesn't force you to participate, but he marks down when you do to help your participation average. not much work besides the online homework.
Cons: if nobody participates, he doesn't like to force people to answer so conversation kind of fizzles out. besides that, he's awesome!
