French 101 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A
"Skip class? You won't pass." "Tests are tough" "Lectures are long"

OH MY GOSH! If you want to start in French, your screwed. She speaks in French the whole time to give you the "full French experience". If your a beginner and don't know any French, don't take this Professor. She's awful. She also says that there is a need for the book. There's no need. Just copy the book. It's way to much money. Awful class.

FR 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She demotivates her students. She teaches everyone as if we are little children. If you can avoid taking a class with her, do so. Her classes are extremely boring and she gives too much homework for a 100 level class.

French 101-102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Often times, this professor becomes incredibly irritated at any confusion students have. She is personally offended when you are not fully aware of what she is trying to communicate, even though she teaches French, which no student is even close to fluent in (this is their first experience). She doesn't really teach. Students figure it out alone.

FR 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Speaks down to the class as if we're children, strict class policies, harsh grader. For a 101 class, she teaches like its a 200+ level class. Ridiculous "activities" wherein we learn nothing. I had a better experience in high school Spanish and didn't even have to pay for it. Expects too much of students who have lives outside of French 101.

She's an intelligent professor who knows a lot about the french language and culture. However, she is completely callous when a student is sick or late to class. Doesn't except late homework or any excuses what-so-ever. Strictest attendance policy out of any class I've taken at Suffolk

Great professor, so sweet. Very interested and passionate about the french language. Test and quizzes are somewhat hard but she uses exactly what she explains in class so if you study you will do fine. Participation and attendance is important. A lot of very interesting cultural lessons from her travel experience. Would definitely take her again!
