Skippon, Samuel Silver_nugget
[FREN W1101] Elementary French I

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

I thought Prof. Skippon was great. His pronunciation of both French and English are great as said before. He is very understanding and nice. Is very willing to explain things if you don't understand or have any questions. He seemed to be a out of place for some time this semester, since we fell behind when he got sick and had to cancel class twice but is an incredibly good teacher. I give him my highest recommendation.

-If you study once in a while and are good at memorizing vocab quickly, you can do good cuz I didn't study all the time. Only like 1 or 2 a week, when I did homework or were going to have a quiz or test.

Workload:

Pretty good. Homework at the end of every chapter. Started off as weekly quizzes but then were just announced, several fairly easy compositions, 3 tests, Oral midterm, and final.
