Dobie, Madeleine Silver_nugget
[FREN W3421] Intro to French and Francophone studies

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

Madame Dobie is a reserved lecturer, but has an enormous amount of knowledge. She is a no nonsense type, but her witty British side does shine through at times. She refuses to bullshit and she refuses to listen to bullshit, which is a welcome change from many French professors. You will learn a lot in this class, and you will find that you know it cold. It's refreshing, really.


2 short four page papers with optional re-writes. Midterm and Final. Readings for each class that don't take longer than 3 hours for the longest one. Not bad at all.
