Jouanneau-Fertig, Isabelle Silver_nugget
Composition and Conversation

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

She is so sweet and genuinely loves teaching. She was always enthusiastic and engaging, and I found that my French did improve, although you have to put in effort and not expect it to just magically happen. A really positive experience both with her and with the other students.

Workload:

five 1-2 page creative papers, required participation, an ungraded personal journal due each week, one 40-minute presentation with a partner. a couple movies you have to see out of class and do writeups for, and some reading (a comic book or excerpts from bigger works). no midterm/final. ended up being more work than i had expected, but not too much, and was worth it.
