Juan Jimenez has been my favorite professor at Columbia. He is so kind and understanding, and he truly wants you to enjoy his class. Juan Jimenez even invited those of us who weren't able to go home for Thanksgiving to his house for his family's Thanksgiving! His goal is to help you learn spanish and have fun doing it, not to trip you up and give you a bad grade. His class will be the least stressful class in your schedule and possibly one of your favorite. In my case, my entire class wants to participate and everyone seemingly has a good time. While I have not gotten my grade back yet, it seems that it is fairly easy to get an A- if you are participating and putting effort into your assignments.
