Not too easy. Not too difficult.
If you need to take a language at De Anza, TAKE FRENCH WITH MADAME KARST. I'm not kidding when I say that she is the best foreign language teacher I've ever had (and this is my third time taking a foreign language).
We learned the basics of French, mainly focusing on commonly used verbs and vocabulary. We didn't focus that much on grammar, but there was a small section at the end of each chapter (we got through 6 in FREN 1) that we went over in detail. She honestly covered each section in such detail, making sure that everyone understood something before moving on.

Advice for students:
Study a little bit every day, ask questions when you need to, and come to class regularly!
