Tufts University: FR003 - Intermediate French 1 - French - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Ellen Detwiller | FR003 - Intermediate French 1 | French2005-12-24

Review:
Prof. Detwiller is the best- she is genuinely concerned with her students understanding and makes herself available if you need to see her. She tries hard to make class interesting- but its a language class so theres not that much she can do. I plan on taking French 4 with her. She also really appreciates participation, as long as your giving effort she'll reward you.

Workload:
Straightforward, not a lot of work at all.

Review:
Wonderful professor. Show her that you want to learn the language and she'll do anything to help you excel. Go to her office hours, she's fabulous to talk to, is good at explaining grammar, and gives feedback on your class performance.

Workload:
Do the homework, do the class activities beforehand, study the yellow grammar book that you are "recommended" to purchase (which you MUST MUST MUST purchase and actually USE, too), and you'll be fine. She also assigns compositions once every 2-3 weeks.

Ellen Detwiller | FR003 - Intermediate French 1 | French2005-05-07

Review:
Madame Detwiller is a joy and I recommend that all mid-level French students try to take a class from her. She's so concerned with students progress and all students comprehension of the French language. She is understanding about students varying interests in the language and realizes she teaches a class that most students are being forced to take. She makes class fun and interesting while challenging her students the whole time. She has a clear, helpful presentation style that urges participation.

Workload:
Workload was average for a mid-level language class. You have to go to class like all language classes. Make sure to be active in class because she concentrates a lot on that when she gives out final grades. She doesn't check a lot of homework, but if you don't do it, class will be pretty hard to comprehend/sit through.

Saliha Ziane | FR003 - Intermediate French 1 | French2004-11-06

Review:
Very caring professor, when I was doing poorly on quizzes and saw that I had trouble class she immediately "summoned" me to her office hours to talk. Very approachable, very easy to talk to.

Workload:
Not too much work, but expect to do the homework and review grammar as she likes to randomly call on people.

Ellen Detwiller | FR003 - Intermediate French 1 | French2004-04-10

Review:
Professor Detwiller lectures well and is extremely conscious of students' progress especially if she sees that they are putting effort into her class. She encourages class involvement and makes the class interesting. She is also incredibly available and accommodating.

If however, one does not like French, then the class will not be too much fun.

Workload:
Pretty average workload for a mid-level language class here at Tufts. 4-5 Compositions per semester, 2 quizzes and 2 exams. Daily grammar exercises.
