I have never written a review for an instructor before but the night before her final, I feel compelled to do so. Celine is indeed, the best language instructor you will ever have. I have never seen classes so thoroughly prepared. She obviously spends a ton of time balancing every class with speaking exercises, pronouncing exercises, and reviewing grammar etc. You will speak French at the end of this class, whether you like it or not. The complete opposite of a slacker class, only take if you are looking to actually speak French and not just pass the language requirement, as you will be drilled on conjugations, accents, exceptions to the rules etc. until you hear them in your sleep. Since Celine puts so much energy into her classes, she expects you to put the equal amount. Even though all Elementary II classes had the same test, there is no way that any one was a harsher grader in terms of accents and other nuances than Celine. She also makes sure you are comfortable speaking. She allots time to talk to a classmate for like 4-5 minutes about 3-4 times every class with conversation prompts and makes sure you are speaking that entire time. She also is a big fan of randomly calling on students. I am getting a C in the class and have put an equal amount of work into every other language class I've ever taken here and gotten a B+ - A, however, I have learned more French this semester than I've ever learned in so short of a time.
