Spanish 2 Student Reflections:
“To my surprise, I found CoffeeBreak to be the most helpful resource. It would not suffice on its own in terms of teaching Spanish, but I would often find discussion questions and videos repetitive or easy simply because CoffeeBreak had already taught the concept well. It also provided a lot of context for those videos, and gave me a more applicable understanding of everything we learned.”
“The most helpful part of this course for me was the Quizlets and the coffeebreak. I think the quizlets were helpful because they showed me what I have learned and what I need to learn. I think the CoffeeBreaks were helpful because I could actually hear how to pronounce words and how to conjugate them.The most challenging part about this course was learning how to do past tense verbs. It was challenging because it took some time to learn how to do it. Also, it required a lot of effort and persistence to actually learn how to do.”
“Coffeebreak and the provided videos have been the most beneficial tool in helping me learn Spanish. Both included audio which enhanced my Spanish learning. I enjoyed listening in our CoffeeBreak activities, and I enjoyed the audio + visuals given in the videos. These activities were also not boring. The most challenging part of this course was Duolingo. It required you to think, remember, and use words you’ve learned in the past. Memorization was definitely difficult for me.”
“CoffeeBreak and Quizlets were the most helpful part of this course. They both provided a more engaging way of learning that was most beneficial to me. Also the quizlet games were fun and helpful. The most challenging parts of this course have been memorizing the more advanced vocabulary and conjugating everything. Vocabulary and conjugating are always the most challenging parts of learning a new language.”
