Simpson, Joel
[FREN W1101] Elementary French I

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

This is a very informative class, with clear, concise lectures. The professor is very motivated, knowledgeable about just about everything, and is generally very pleasant. The sessions were often very interesting and Professor Simpson is one of the most gregarious people I've every met and he seems to take a genuine interest in his students, in addition to loving teaching. This class was a delightful experience where I learned a lot. And I found him to be a helpful and fair grader, too. My one note is this, I do think it would benefit Simpson to teach an upper level course because I did not feel he was challenged by our class (but then again, I wouldn't have been either). And he's late A LOT, but then again, so am I.
