Advanced Spanish and Composition
Makela was an amazing Spanish teacher. Her Spanish class was the second Spanish class I took at UCLA, and she made it very clear what was expected of each student. At first I found her to be extremely intimidating, but as I grew more comfortable with the class, she was much more welcoming. Be prepared for a lot of homework every night, but it's not at all unbearable. She's always extremely willing to help you out with anything, especially in office hours. I found the quizzes to be the hardest part of the class. In the end, I was not exactly pleasantly surprised by my grade, but I know I should have worked harder as finals rolled around. Take this class with Makela - I'm taking another one with her next quarter.
Professor Dobos is the greatest! Her class is geared toward the success of her students, and you learn much more this way! It is a stress-free class, will up your GPA, and is a great refresher course for anyone that hasn't taken spanish in a while. I highly recommend this class, and I commend professor Dobos for her great class this winter quarter!
