Aurora, Vincent Silver_nugget
[FREN W1205] Accelerated Intermediate French I+II

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

Vincent is hilarious. He always tried to spark the interest of every person in the room, and he knows so much about modern French culture.

The best part is that since he is American, he understands the difficulty Americans have in learning French, unlike other French professors that are French.

I learned more French in this class than I did in 2 years of French with other teachers. Also he actually taught us about current politics and events in France, unlike other professors who usually just go off the culturelle section in the textbook, which is usually outdated/irrelevant.

Workload:

There is quite a lot of reading and listening, and the class moves VERY QUICKLY. Take it if you have a decent amount of time daily to devote to it.

Go to his office hour!!!
