Baudry, Berenice Gold_nugget
[FREN 1102] Elementary II

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

Professor Baudry is terrific, absolutely terrific. She pushes you, but she's so supportive, humorous, and passionate, that I know most of my class looked forward to our time with her the most. The enthusiasm she puts into her class and her students is only matched by her personal awesomeness - she knows everything about everything, and it makes our classes very, very interesting. Most importantly, she cares most about the fact that you try, not that you're right. I was one of the worst in our class, but she definitely rewarded me for giving it my all, and in a language class that is great motivation. Take her, if you can. Really. She's the best professor I've had in all my three semesters.

Workload:

Moderate - if you're doing well, it'll be minimal, but if you're struggling, it'll be moderate but totally manageable. Daily exercises, weekly quizzes, four exams, bi-weekly compositions, and a final. It does feel like you're being constantly tested, but that's good - it motivates you to stay on it.
