Professor Sherno is a very genuine and caring person. Spanish 25 is a composition class, which may sound hard at first but it really isn't. She allows you to write a rough draft, which she grades very leniently on grammar & vocab. usage, and comments in great details how you can improve your final draft. She's sweet, approachable, and truly cares about teaching. Frankly, if you participate, do your homework (which she really only cares if you do it, you won't be graded on how well you do your homework), and put some effort into your essays, you will do well, if not very well. Don't get discouraged if you don't get an A++++ on your essays, because she grades rather strictly on the final draft, but your essay grades are definitely not everything. I'm not a native speaker, but I did well and enjoyed the class. I would definitely take another class taught by her.

She is a great speaker! The class was usually around one and a half hours, and yet you remain awake the whole time!! she taught interesting material and was really concerned about your learning and was easily approachable.

Sherno is AMAZING. The class itself was not too easy, but not too difficult. There was homework every night, but it was manageable. We had four essays due overall, and she does grade pretty hard, but it's in a very constructive way that helps you out. There are no "tests," only quizzes on the readings and grammatical concepts that are well-covered in class. Before taking her class, I felt like I had reached a plateau and that I hadn't really learned any new Spanish since my first couple of years in high school. She made me realize just how much I really had learned in my six years of Spanish. If you can, take her class!

Prof. Sherno is a great profesora. The first day of class I was about to drop it because the material did not seem interesting but I am glad I did not. Sherno make the two hours go by rather quickly and without the extreme boredom you must endure in other classes. She is very funny and makes you feel comfortable in the classroom and welcomes you to talk to her.
Grading breakdown: Oral group presentation 10%, participation 15%, midterm (take-home) 20%, final 25%, final paper 30%
I'd def. recommend a class with Sherno
