**Actual Course: Spanish 44**

She is an extremely nice and pretty funny professor. You will definitely get a laugh in her class.

She lectures very well. No powerpoint slides so you have to write everything you hear from you which is always important.

Tests: They actually test your knowledge on the subject, not just pure regurgitation.

Final: 5 Parts. Cumulative.
Part 1: 10 Pair of words. Identify and connect 4 of them.
Part2 : 10 important key terms. Briefly define them.
Part 3: 4 Shorts Answers to choose from. Pick 2 to write about.
Part 4: Two images to choose from and connect them with the 3 given authors. Choose 1 to write about.
Part 5. A 3 part essay but choose 1 topic to write the essay on.

I'll admit, I was over the test by finishing Part 2 because it was so much writing but by the time I was done I felt extremely accomplished.

Readings aren't that bad. Some aren't interesting but they are manageable during the week. The majority of the test is based on the readings and a minor part has to do with the historical background Cortinez would lecture about in class.

Professor Cortinez is great. The lectures were not overly complicated and she provided the slides and readings. The TAs were also great and discussions were all coordinated so all TAs covered similar topics. The class was easy and readings were not really necessary.

Don't let this class fool you- although the course was originally titled Film and Lit in the Spanish Speaking World, it turned into Chilean Film and Lit. Professor Cortinez has a wealth of knowledge about Chile, but tends to ramble on about her own pet projects. There's no break during the two hour class- and your grade depends entirely on the TA. The bottom line is that if you show up to class and sign in (mandatory attendance), and do a little bit of review before the final, you'll easily pass with flying colors.
