I would NEVER ever reccommend him for anything. I took him for Humanities and is the worst teacher I have ever had! I got all A's and B's on quizzes and papers and didnt do so well on the final but still got a low D. Basically your grade is based on the final. The class is so boring and uninteresting. He sits in the front and talks no powerpoint.

While Prof. Fritzen has high expectations of his students and can be hard on them sometimes, I feel that I have learned lot from this course. I feel confident in the new French skills that I have learned and plan to take the second level next semester even though I do not need the course for credit.

Amazing teacher, cares about his students, keeps the class alive, assigns easy quizs and has a review day the day before, assigns easy papers, and you watch a lot of videos. He also tells a ton of storys that keep the class entertaining.

I've had bodo for multiple classes. He's kind and cares about you. However he does not understand where you get confused even a little bit. He has a Ph.D. and he speaks 3 languages fluently. He offers only a few point opportunities so spend 6 plus hours on the exams (seriously). His stories are super interesting to. Very eclectic guy. I recommend!

This course is by no means a blow off course. It has a heavy homework load. Be prepared to spend a few hours per class completing it. The tests are take home but google translate boobie-trapped. Attending tutoring is almost a must but if you apply yourself, the course is very rewarding. I would recommend over Spanish. He thrives on your success.

I had Bodo from French 1-3 as well as Mythology when french 4 was canceled. He expects a lot from students and if you just do the work, you will do well. A lot of the French is busy work, do the first 8 in each section and finish the rest in class because you go over everything. Mythology was straight memorization. Papers never over 2 pages.

He was alright. I had him for humanities and i would not reccoment him for that, though ive heard hes great for everything else. he spent a great deal of time talking about Germany, hes german. he did not discuss art much, and I feel like all i learned was a memorized list of art work and their artists. very nice man though, but a lot of quizzes.

Dr. Fritzen is an awesome professor. He is demanding, but he makes his expectations clear from the beginning, and lets you know where you stand, and what you need to do to improve your grade. He is enthusiastic about the subject, and his stories are interesting. I loved this class!

Actually, I took French I-French IV and his Mythology class(3 A's, 1 B, in one now) and I have loved every one of them. I have never missed a class that I didn't absolutely have to. Hard teacher but he gives you everything you need to do well if you apply yourself. Love this teacher!!!!!!!

I really enjoyed this class. Bodo is a great and energetic professor. He is full of knowledge and loves to teach! I learned a ton of German and hope to learn more again once my schedule frees up. Highly recommended.

Very opinionated. Can be rude at times if you disagree with him. He picks favorites, and will sometimes call you names (in a joking matter, of course...) if you mess up. Class is a little difficult- but I really learned A LOT. Plan on spending atleast 6 hours a week studying. If you put forth the effort, you'll really it back in the end.

Bodo is hands down the best professor I've ever had! He has perfected a fun balance in his classroom where he demands attention while instructing, but leaves time for plenty of "off but on" discussion. He made me want to go to his class everyday!! Bodo does everything in his power to help the whole class understand what he's teaching.

He's a very smart man, and easy to get along with, but it is difficult to score well on his tests.
