Testimonial:
Testimonial:
• The first semester, I took PEAL classes (for foreign students) such as culturas y tradiciones, literature y tango, which were all pretty easy (they seem hard at first because they are all in Spanish). The second semester I took Marketing & other business classes with the Argentine students which required a lot of studying.
• Literatura; its in Spanish, but nice if you want to read;
• Arte Argentina: really nice, you get to know about the city
• History classes in English, Basic Spanish. The workload was about the same as CSULB
• I took four classes in Spanish. A Spanish grammar class, Spanish literature, Tang, Cultures & Traditions. They were less challenging than my classes at CSULB. It was a significantly less amount of work. My profs were helpful.
• Spanish speaking classes. Professors lectured through reading books, playing videos, and assigning group presentations. Exams were mostly essays and free response. Overall an easy A.
• I took four PEAL (Spanish classes) and 1 English class. The classes weren’t very hard as long as the teacher saw you were trying you would get a good grade. Teachers, for the most part, were very helpful and loved to answer questions.
• Gender history, social economy, international business, Latin America in global economy, history of Latin America. Easier courses styled around lectures (less class participation necessary). One midterm and one final exam only.
• Contemporary Argentine Art, Latin-American Cinema, Argentine Culture, Tango, Intermediate Verbal Communication. The classes varied from those taken at CSULB because I opted to take all of my classes in Spanish. For that, the classes were much more difficult. The teaching style was much more hands off than we are used to at CSULB. You’ll do fine if you are a more independent student. Overall the work needed to receive an A (8-10/10) was easily achieved.
