Fren200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I still have mixed feelings about this class. The immersion is great in theory, however, most of it was just complex (for that time) linguistics. We listened to almost no French conversation in class and Madam Furry does not enunciate. So imagine talking about linguistics for an hour in French with a person that is hard to hear. I don't even know.

FREN300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Furry is awesome - she doesn't give many A's, but her class is clearly organized and the progression of the semester is very well thought-out. She has a scary rep, but she's actually funny and very nice. She will whip your grammar into shape, and I feel infinitely more confident in French now. This is exactly how a French grammar course should be.

FREN204 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Unorganized grammar review, grudge that I speak Spanish? Class time spent talking about stories only no grammar. Time used poorly; Very little instruction. Horrible experience. She expects near- perfection proficiency. Waste of time. She seems to laugh at students errors. AVOID HER AT ALL COSTS!!!!

FREN300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Furry definitely knows her stuff, and 300 is a good class for people seeking lots of feedback on their writing. She's a tough grader, but she also gives a lot of time to complete her short writing assignments. My complaint was the use of in-class time (3x/wk), which usually consisted of unorganized grammar review that I found unproductive.

FREN255H Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Furry really wants you to know French...and know it well. Thus, her grading is extremely tough. You have to work your butt off for an A-. There is a fair amoutn of work...but its not over the top. She will spend countless hours helping you understand. Your French really will improve, but usually at the cost of yoru GPA.

FREN23 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr Furry expects a lot from her students and can be a difficult, but fair, grader. She's fun, and unlike the other commenter said, showed a great deal of interest and knowledge of French culture (must depend on the course). Everyone liked her, even those that didn't do as well.

FREN 55 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She's technically very good (ie. at grammar) but no fun and little real sense of the culture. Boring, but effective for non-creative subjects like FREN 55.
