Matheis, Eric
[FREN W1101] Elementary French I

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

I entered class on the first day not knowing any french, and i was told that the course would be a "emersion" learning experience. It was basically a class where he spoke to us as though we know french and had been speaking it our entire lives. He spoke too fast and didn't take time to stop and clarify himself. When it came to quizs, he didn't put what he said he would on the quiz and instead put everything he told us not to worry about learning. I do not recommend him as a professor unless you were placed in Elementary French and already have an extensive background in the language.

Workload:

Average hw daily about 30min and quizs weekly
