Very funny professor. Keeps lectures entertaining. Offer regrades on essays and homework are P/NP. Deadlines are strict though. If u miss turning it in in the first 2 minutes of class you get a 0. Overall, a great booster class.

BEST CLASS AND BEST TEACHER AT UCD! You learn so much more than you would expect! It's such a fun class too! Homework definitely helps boost your grade up if you didn't do too well on one of the papers. Although, he lets you revise the papers as many times as you want until the next one is due which is pretty nice. An easy A if you go to class :)

Prof. Russell is great. He is very passionate and knowledgeable about the subject matter. His clear, entertaining, and engaging style of teaching made what, from the outset, seemed like a dull and cumbersome subject easy to grasp and fun. I would definitely recommend him and plan on taking more courses taught by him.

Absolutely horrid is all I can say. Extremely condescending in office hours (which he seems to resent) and in class. Had 3 or 4 fans in class that he joked with the whole quarter, the rest of us got much less help/attention.

A knowledgeable guy, but no one was more impressed by this than him. Extremely rude at times, kind of still operating within the Belgian/French school system.

Really wonderful professor. Fun, engaging, interesting, helpful, and fair. By far my favorite French professor at UC Davis. Regular homework assignments and quizzes, but he really gets you interested in the material and makes you want to come to class. What more can you ask for? If you get the opportunity, take his classes!

Very knowledgeable, hilarious, crystal clear. Although sometimes he reiterates a point too much in order to get his message across. Classes were somewhat slow because of this, but still very engaging and discussion-oriented.

This prof is one of the hardest in the French department, but he is funny and super on his game. He knows his history and linguistics like no other! He makes you want to learn and work hard.

I really enjoyed this class, the content and Prof Russell. He's got a great sense of humor and had outlines for us every day. I don't see why anyone would give him a bad rating unless they have a personal gripe with him... If you understand everything, it's an easy A in my opinion.

Dr. Russell is amazing. I do not understand why some people here give him less than perfect ratings. He is truly one of the best professors in the French department. Dr. Russell, please keep up the good work.

Prof. Russel is great!! I highly recommend his class. He has a great sense of humor and makes class fun. You don't really need to read the book that much (for this class at least) and there is only one midterm which was very reasonable.
