O'Keeffe, Brian Silver_nugget
[FREN W1101] Elementary French I

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

Prof. O'Keeffe has so much talent as a professor, but a lot of the time is too disorganized/lazy/apathetic to use it. He has a lot of enthusiasm for French and explains everything clearly and even reviews for tests and quizzes in class. He's very nice and funny but didn't seem to ultimately care enough about students as individuals to encourage us to improve our overall language skills. He has also been known to come to class hung over and seems to wing certain lectures, but they're still good--just wish he'd try/seem to care more about the students.

Workload:

Very light. O'Keeffe seems to have been scarred by his workload at Oxbridge and gives a few quizzes, workbook pages and very few short compositions.
