Schonfelder, Angela
[FREN W1101] Elementary French I

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

She was such a terrible teacher, and she knew it. She even gave us hints for the standardized exams the day before so that we could prepare decent answers. I think she did this b/c she knew her "lessons" hadn't prepared us well enough to do the essays spontaneously, the way they're supposed to be done. This wouldn't even be such a problem if I didn't plan on going to French 2. I would have preferred a prof who showed up, had a lesson plan, etc. ps Her English is so horrendous that hurts my ears, I can't even imagine how her French accent must be.

Workload:

she gives homework but rarely remembers to collect it, and hates to take a moment of her precious time to look at it.
