I’m not sure why Powell gets such a bad rep. Her class was difficult because she only talked in Spanish, but I feel like I actually learned Spanish in her class. She’s pretty funny, and if you’re willing to engage and do the homework you’ll do fine in her class!

The person below me couldn't have said it any better. She is a witch and she needs to be removed. I am starting a petition. She has noooo compassion and doesn't give the students credit for what they truly are: honest, full of integrity, and intelligent. Getting an A is nearly impossible unless you are a native speaker and even then it's hard. If you are ever sick, don't tell her...she doesn't care.

I've seen other not so great reviews of Dr. Eilene Powell's classes, but I think that's because people were writing reviews about her that were supposed to be for her TAs.

I had a great experience in this class. I have only been learning Spanish for a few years now so I was scared on how this class would go, but I shouldn't have been. She was really engaging, even during 8am lectures, and often cancelled 8am lectures so we could sleep in, which I really appreciated. There's only 3 essays (1-2 pages) for this class. When you write your rough draft, she gives you SO MUCH feedback because she actually cares about developing her students as speakers/writers of Spanish. There were maybe 1-2 readings per week, so the workload wasn't bad. Also, she's really easy to talk to so if you ever needed an extension on anything, need help on an essay etc., she's amazing! Would definitely take another Spanish class with her again.

Dra. Powell reminded me so much of my high Spanish teachers, and that is why her class was my favorite. It was online because of covid, but it was still very engaging. She was so understanding of everything going on in the real world and that is what I liked about her. I highly recommend taking this class with her, because I am infidelity going to try to take more classes with her.

This is my second class with Dr. Powell, I absolutely recommend taking any of her classes! She is incredibly accommodating to everything, and not only is she a great professor, but also a great person. The class was a take home midterm, a presentation, and a final paper. There was reading, but it is easily doable.
