Balkoski, Katherine Silver_nugget
[FREN W1101] Elementary French I

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

Great teacher! Very chill, homework is a ton, but that is normal for all French classes. She wants you to do well, so she grades with partial credit and extra credit opportunities.

Downside: You won't learn much French, so even though you do well on everything she gives you (40% of the grade) the rest is department wide, and it will be hella impossible, so the final and especially the oral review and one of the tests in the semester where a grade downer...

Workload:

normal; very adequate and appropriately assigned!
