Teaching style
 
The online Spanish course uses a large variety of interactive teaching tools. With many of these the student gets immediate feedback, both oral and written. 

Homework, participation and attendance
Most points are earned through monitored tests. Students earn additional points by participating in a variety of activities designed to increase their speaking and listening skills.

Tests and quizzes
There are seven chapter tests (each 100 points) and one final exam (200 points). The chapter tests are learning tools in themselves and may be taken repeatedly.   

Background and other interests
I have visited many places in Mexico. My graduate degree is from UMKC and my undergraduate degree is from Rockhurst College.
