Wood, Christopher Silver_nugget
[FREN W1101] Elementary French I

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

For the first couple of weeks of class, many of us thought Christopher Wood WAS French, he spoke English so rarely. If you believe in the immersion method, he could be the instructor for you. That said, he will explain things in English, for those who are a little confused!
I would definitely recommend him, mainly because a sense of humor is essential when you have signed up to make a fool of yourself in public with your first attempts to speak French. He is quirky and amusing, and it is a fun and lighthearted class. It's just a shame he's not currently teaching Elementary French II.

Workload:

The workload will not kill you, but be warned - he WILL check your workbook while you are taking a test, so keep it up to date.
