Sasson, Sarah
[FREN W1222] Intermediate Conversation II

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

Whoever said that Sarah stressed them out from lack of work is slightly neurotic. As far as a conversation class goes, Sarah was a great professor! She really does create a very relaxed and open atmosphere, and this class was a nice contrast to the other French class I took the same semester, for which I always had work.

There seemed to be no real syllabus or direction for the class, but the comfortable atmosphere gave me a lot more confidence to speak, and she is very good about introducing you to idioms and slang - things you might actually use in conversation!

The only downside is that I was never sure what I was being graded on, seeing as there was practically no workload apart from a few readings and 1 oral presentation.

Other than that, if you want a relaxed, easy class to improve your conversation skills, this one is a no-brainer!
