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

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

Hubert-Leibler is a really awesome professor! Even though the class occurs every day, I never felt like we were going over the same material unnecessarily. Each class, she would cover basic new concepts, allow time for a couple one-on-one speaking exercises that reviewed the concepts learned, and go over the homework. She could answer every question--and when the question was directed at something we hadn't studied yet (often), she would point that out then continue to answer the question or to see the person after class to answer it. She was always patient even though the pace of a beginner's class must seem pretty tedious and the material very basic for a long-time teacher. I highly recommend this class.

Workload:

Definitely manageable (even though it looks like a lot...):
Daily homework (about 20-30 minutes). Quizzes once a week or a test. About 4 Papers. 4 Tests. 2 Orals. Checks homework 4 times (during tests). Final exam.
