Estoy cursando la asignatura Física Aplicada. Tuve que optar entre el curso del Lunes a las 19 horas y el curso del Sábado a las 8 horas.

asignatura: it's part of a curriculum
curso: the same, or any course about anything, anywhere.

Hice un curso de plantas de balcón en 6 clases. La profesora era una divina (use flamboyant voice intonation accordingly)

Ok, thanks. So you would say hice un curso not tomé un curso. That's good to know also.

Usage wise, in Spain we also say, "Hice un curso de..."

In other areas (like Mexico?) I believe they say more, "Tomé un curso de..."

Saludos cordiales.

(Uy, me comí la tilde sobre la "é"... ¡Eeeepa!)

@Poli: As Pablo said, in Mexico you can say "tomé un curso" or "llevé un curso", when you are the student; our teachers say "dar un curso". We tend to use "hacer un curso" mostly for designing it and choosing the contents of it. :)
