Madonna University - Comments and Student Experiences|
I do not recommend this school for their language program, especially for Spanish unless you are very fluent already in the language and you are looking for an easy "A". After much consideration and seeing that I only have two semesters left, I will probably go one more semester and then find another facility like Berlitz or something and get proper training in the language. Another thing to consider, Madonna only offers beginner and intermediate levels and then the rest of your classes are electives. Try finding a facility that goes beyond and can give you more in-depth learning to fulfill you experience in becoming proficient in the language. I am going to try Berlitz because I saw on their website that they go up to 10 levels which is amazing. For as much money that I spent at Madonna, I should have gone there. This is one of those "if I knew then what I know now.." kind of moment for myself. But, you live and you learn. So, now I know next time to make sure I find a facility that can prepare a little better and give me a better experience. It is times like this that make me feel like it is not worth going to school and getting my degree because it is too stressful and frustrating and the guidance that I need I do not see. Some times and I do mean sometimes, teachers forget that not everyone learns the same way. Some can learn by just listening to a lecture, some can learn hands on and with visual aides, and then there are some who need all the above. Well, I'm one of those that need everything. I have to be able to apply what someone is telling me to something in order to understand. In this program, there is not very much aide so you are pretty much on your own. I hope that someone else has had a better experience who has never tried a foreign language before and has come out learning to speak fluently through Madonna. I'm just one who has not made it, unfortunately.
