Hubert-Leibler, Pascale Silver_nugget
[FREN W1101] Elementary French I

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

She is absolutely awesome. Consider yourself lucky if you end up with her as your introduction to the French language! She is always smiling, with unbelievable amounts of energy and willing to help you however she can.

I too, had no clue she was the head of the department as she is in no way pretentious and very good at teaching the basic levels of the language. Sometimes, I think big time professors lose that spark or ability to connect to what they are teaching and the students whom they are teaching. This was never the case with her as she is incredibly enthusiastic and down to earth.

I have never had a language teacher like her and it is unfortunate that she is not teaching the follow up course next semester (similar to the other review last year)!
