Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course because the recordings to listen to real French people speaking French were very helpful; you were able to hear a real French conversation. Also, the worksheets were very specific to the course so really made the students understand and apply the new material.
I really like the verb conjugation sheets, as strict as they were. Since we did one almost every class, the conjugations were really drilled into your brain and it became natural to conjugate them as the year went on. Additionally, my teacher knew which verbs we were having trouble on so would drill us on those more than the ones we were already comfortable with.

Advice for students:
I would say to definitely go through the online textbook. The exercises there were extremely helpful if you were struggling and the little conversation skits at the beginning of each section were helpful to understand the context in which to use the new material we were learning.
