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.

Workload:

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.
