Karen is a wonderful teacher. She is tough and won't put up with any bullshit but she will help you improve your french like no other. She encourages you to speak, won't give you straight answers but rather, explain things to you in French or aid you in understanding it on your own. Her critique of speaking and homework is constructive and never hurtful and she is a great, funny woman.

If you do the homework and you are willing to learn you will go far in her class with a good grade


Few quizzes, homework 2x a week (workbook activities or handout sheets), midterm and final exam
