spanish at newcastle isn’t great in my opinion - the way it’s taught feels entirely ineffective and the seminars feel like a complete waste of time as they’re very badly organised and the prep work is organised even worse so nobody has a clue what to actually do for the seminars. the japanese staff and course along with the staff on optional modules are great however.

The tutor was the worse teacher I ever met, loud and with horrible manners. Her teaching methods are bizarre and would not accept any comment regarding to future improvement. I did not enjoy my course and I regretted every pennies I spend on it. The managers of the university should review those tutors. read more
