Ellicson, Kirsten
French Elementary II, accelerated 6 weeks

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

I like Professor Ellicson very much. However, our class had a rough start. Many of the exams were confusing because they were often worded akwardly and contained many typos. At first she seemed disorganized, and a bit inexperienced (If I sound harsh, it's just because my last professor, Samuel Skippon, was an exceptionally wonderful and efficient teacher). Though the beginning of class was a bit rough, it got better. She was always available outside of class to help. Also, her teaching style seemed to improve dramatically as the semester progressed. She was extremely kind. She often bought us delicious french treats to share with the class and her favorite french music. I definitely like her as a person, and I could tell she cared about her students. She also later loosened up with the grades to make up for the confusing exams.

Workload:

very heavy, due to the accelerated content of the course.
About 2 chapters, one test and one quiz a week.
