Boyman, Anne Silver_nugget
Advanced Oral French

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

Anne is amazing. If you do not like her, then you do not know how to speak French. If she tells you that your pronunciation is bad - then it is bad. She is just saving you from future ridicule at the hands of the French. If you speak French like a cow, you should take a lower-level language class. If you do not think that you speak French like a cow, then show up on the first day of class and Anne will tell you whether you speak French like a cow or not. She will kindly ask you to wait a few semesters if this is the case. This class is really fun and is a pleasure to attend. If it feels too easy, do not worry. Your French really will improve.


One major oral presentation (lasting 75 minutes, but this can be extended to 150 minutes over two classes if your topic is interesting enough). After that, it is generally a breeze, but you must participate in class and be vocal. Make sure to attend all sessions.
