Cooke, Roderick Silver_nugget
[FREN W1101] Elementary French I

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

Simply the man. Once you "get" his sense of humor he is absolutely hilarious and the nicest guy you could ask for. His mother was French so he's been speaking it from birth and knows what he is talking about. He is serious about helping his student learn French and lay a solid foundation, is a more than fair grader, and will quite often break out into English (very awesome British English that is) when needed. If you get Rod, consider yourself extremely lucky.

Workload:

Not too bad. 5 compositions, 4 tests, oral exam, oral presentation, and a final (all the French classes are the same). I didn't open the workbook once outside of class and got an "A", but then again, I took a little French in high school.
