Overall, students found Professor Al-Kaseyís lecturing style to be excellent and enthusiastic when it came to the subject matter, and thus found the course to be quite enjoyable. They appreciated her use of examples and visuals, as well as the quizzes given for each chapter. One concern students had was about the pace of the course and the course length. Some found that it was too much material to cover in the six week period, and thus was a little tiring and tough to keep up sometimes. As a result, one suggestion students have for Professor Al-Kasey is to take the short time into account and make the final exam a little easier.

Lectures were enjoyable however they were noted to be somewhat disorganized which made learning for some difficult. As well, some students were concerned with the fact that others who were well versed in Spanish were being admitted to the class and were throwing off the grading unfairly for those who were coming in fresh to the introductory class.
