Skippon, Samuel Silver_nugget
[FREN W1101] Elementary French I

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

I COMPLETELY agree. I found Professor Skippon to be an exemplary language teacher. He makes learning fun and interactive, and has a fabulous sense of humor, and doesn't take himself too seriously. He does, however, have a genuine concern that students are learning and that the class can forge ahead at the same level without leaving anyone behind. I have taken French before, and thought that the class would be too basic, but he keeps class interesting, and his forays into contemporary French culture and language would keep anyone interested. Altogether a fabulous teacher, and every effort should be made to get into his section.

Workload:

not too hard at all...workbook activities, some light compositions, tests, quizzes
