Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This is definitely a class you take after the prerequisites of the French 100 series, or if you test into the class. It may seem really easy at first, but the testing material is incredibly different than the first year. The first year testing is very vocab based and regurgitating information. Second year is applying what you have learned, and the tests are more free response, so you really need to understand the material gone over in class and structures learned. Developing your vocabulary is very helpful, too. Just don't take the surprising decrease of coursework as an implication that the class is going to be a breeze, because it won't be. But as long as you pay attention and do the work, it'll be fine!
During French 201 you build on concepts you learned from FR 101,102,103. It helps you move towards becoming more fluent in French, and more comfortable speaking. I learned more about French culture and developed my French.

Advice for students:
Quizlet is a great way to study. I also met up with classmates to review class material. Don't skip the class because every class is important.
