    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher uses an excellent method of immersing the students in the language by only speaking french in class, unless a student is truly struggling with understanding the objective of the class.

    Course highlights:

    I truly enjoyed the film critique portion of this class. In this exercise, I learned the vocabulary necessary for analyzing film. This not only helps me learn french but incorporates a subject I am very passionate about, film.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice I would give to a student is to speak french in class as much as possible.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class improved my ability to speak French by a landslide! Before, I could understand it and could write it, but with this class, we practiced a lot of speaking. As such, I improved a ton. So if your weakness is speaking, this class might challenge you but it is definitely worth it! Bon chance!

    Course highlights:

    This course had lots of chapters and topics we focused on. For example, one section was spent on jobs. We learned new vocabulary and made resumes. One of my favorite activities was creating a job and then switching with someone else -- I applied for the job they created and they applied for mine. It was super interactive and helped my speaking ability. Each section had very good activities, too. Everything was very relaxed yet interactive and informative.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just make sure you memorize some good, handy phrases. Even if you can't remember a ton of words, if you have a couple of important key phrases, it helps a lot. For example, I learned how to say "I'm not really sure, let me think on that!" so that whenever the teacher asked me a question I didn't understand, I could have a moment to regroup and come up with an understandable answer. Plus, it makes you sound super smart if you can say that in French instead of just replying with "umm." Also, make sure you do the homework. There might be a lot given to you but they are all super easy -- so why not do them? Plus, repetition in a foreign language is key to learning it.
