Baudry, Berenice Gold_nugget
Intermediate French I, Barnard

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

Berenice is absolutely fantastic. Seriously. She's amazing. She's super, super fair, and just wants you do really well. Our entire class loved her, so much so that most of us are specifically figuring out how we can take her next semester. I actually took Elementary I with her - can't find the course listed. Take her if you get the chance - this was easily my favourite class, despite the fact that I was one of the worst in the group.


Moderate - daily homework (manageable), 6 or so compositions, two oral presentations, 4 exams and a final. Weekly quizzes. It all builds on itself though - how much you put in will be how much you get out. I worked reasonably hard and got an A, despite being one of the worst speakers in our class.
