FREN 1501 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

It's easy if you know a thing or two about French. (I recommend getting on that the summer before) However, even if you do prepare, the tests are all ORAL. Anything is fair game. She moves fast with little explanation or aid for these, because the classes have a lot of students. The quizzes and homework are a breeze, but the tests will slip you up.

Ms. Voulali is a great professor! She tries her best to ensure that everybody in the class understands before she moves on. She is very patient and explains difficulties very well. Always willing to help even if this means staying after class. Of course as with any foreign language, you have to do a lot of studying on your own.

Not helpful. There is only one tutor for the entire department. She moves too fast. I think I would be better off teaching myself the language than I would being taught by her. But unfortunately, class is mandatory, she takes attendance. I honestly prefer not going to class unless there is an exam. 'cause I have completely lost interest in going.

She is very very nice. However, if you know nothing about french I dont recommend. She goes very quickly which is difficult learning a new language. Pay attention, participate, ****do the reviews****, and go to class, should be fine.

Well, if you have just a little background of French, then you should be fine :) Ms. Voulali is a very sweet and nice lady who is always willing to help. It's just that sometimes she goes very fast on the lecture. If you have some knowledge on French, take her; but if you don't, I don't recommend much.

Hard to follow lectures sometimes, but overall what she presents in class is what's on the test. Must have books and attend class to get an A. I missed classes but got A's on tests and quizzes and made a B+. I definitely signed up for the next section of this class with her and will come to class more this semester to get the A.

Ok,I can understand how people with no French background could find this class quite difficult. I would be willing to bet that others who have rated (me included) have taken at least some French in the past. With background, the class is quite manageable and taught in an organized manner. Without any, be willing to work hard to keep up.

She jumps right in with the french the minute you get to class the first day. I couldn't keep up. The textbook/workbook used were all in french. For me VERY HARD class. Instead of helping you understand in class better, she tells you of one single tutor who is supposed to help the entire FRENCH dept. Don't take her unless you want to kill yourself.

Dr. Voulali is a fantastic teacher. However, I do recommend that if you do not have any knowledge of french to not take her class. She has a sweet disposition and cares for her students (which is why i really liked her class). The work given in the class is easy, but the tests are a tad difficult.

All languages teachers want to be in your business and that's just the way she is. If you miss class, she wants to know why and details. She genuinly cares for her students and wants each person to fully succeed. Class is very fun and very active. Tests and quizzes are fairly easy as long as you study the grammar and vocab.
