If you are good at memorizing - an Easy A. Verbs, Basic Grammar, etc. Took this via DE (On Line).

Contrary to belief, if you know NO french at all, I would not recommend it. I struggled pretty hard for this 'bird' course. French isnt for everyone.

Easy course, but a lot of memorization. Tests are fair, it's definitely possible to hit 90% plus.

This course is easy to a point (ie. content). Be warned that there is ALOT of work invovled (ie.memorization). If you take it in class you'll be required to attend a lab weekly and attendance is taken in lecture. You also get marked for participation in class. Threse Syberan is a 'tough' but fun prof to take it with and she prepares you best for the exam. Just make sure you memorize weekly otherwise you won't get the 80% you're looking for.

If you took any French in public school or grade 9 then this course is nothing. Just show up to tests, they all take about 20mins to complete. The hardest part is remembering to show up to te weekly lab.

Pretty easy and useful course. All you have to do is practice and you will be fine.
