This course was brilliantly amazing. I learned a lot about issues in health and health care systems as well as the Spanish vocabulary and hispanic culture associated with it. I loved all of the class discussions and group work. It was amazing to talk about issues in the past, present, and the future. I learned about diseases, habits, stigmas, discrimination, technology, and movements in hispanic culture and the world. You really learned a lot and improved your grammar by speaking with your peers and with the professor. I love this course!
The class discussion was mainly its strengths. The professor facilitated the discussions well and encouraged all of us to participate, which I appreciated. The readings and assignments were fair and the professor always gave great feedback. The course really helped me to learn spanish and think more about communicating with people, for example, the group project with the senior center. I also appreciated thinking about the community as well as issues that we could improve on. The professor really knew his subject and the grammar well. Because of this, his explanations were very clear. He also made ideas seem sense in english grammar.
Most importantly, I think that the professor's passion for teaching, his understanding, and his consideration are what inspired me to learn in the class and participate in class discussions. He was always so understanding and he always kindly replied to every statement or question that you made. He always, always accompanied his feedback with encouragement for the future. His passion for helping students really showed in class. He was always prompt in his responses and returning assignments, which I appreciated. His grading and expectations were very fair and also easygoing a lot. The professor's humor really livened the class up and it was always something to look forward to in class. Trumpacabra, bloombito, capoot, ojo! He made jokes all of the time! I think he influenced me to improve my personality for the better. This semester has been stressful, but this class is what I looked forward to the most out of all of my classes. It also made me think about my interactions and communication with people. His patience, kindness, and easygoing personality are what I hope to emulate in my own personality and show, especially since I hope to interact with patients and learn medicine in the future. Thank you, Professor Cominguez, for being a kind and wonderful teacher. I hope to follow your example and help others in the future in and compassionate and depending on the situation, easygoing manner! He deserves a gold star.
