Elementary Conversational Spanish

Jan 2006

Dr. Potes led an exceptionally good conversation section this semester. She led us through discussions over a range of topics and did a great job of bringing everyone into the conversation. She is not afraid to leave the unbearably dry textbook behind and cover topics that the class is genuinely interested in. She has a lot of passion for the arts in particular and for Colombia; as long as you apply yourself to the class you'll have a wonderful time. One caveat: be prepared to cover the grammar by yourself, mostly. The class doesn't have a lot of room for grammar review since we mostly cover conversational idiom. Take her classes and enjoy!
