Tufts University: FR004 - Intermediate French II - French - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Agnes Trichard-Arany | FR004 - Intermediate French II | French2009-02-12

Review:
Madame Trichard-Arany is one of the best french teachers i've ever had. She is really enthusiastic about the course. I feel that my french drastically improved after taking this class. Other people seemed to mention that she played favorites... In my class she wasn't very supportive of students who haven't done the assignment. While other teachers might not call this out as much, I think it is unfair to say that she played favorites because everyone should come to class with the assignment completed.

Workload:
I think it is certainly a lot of work on a daily basis, but if you put in the work I don't think studying for tests was difficult. She is very straight forward with what will be on the test.

Annie Geoghegan | FR004 - Intermediate French II | French2006-01-29

Review:
I found Prof Geoghegan to be very encouraging and a very good french teacher overall. She does talk rapidly and move from one topic to another pretty quickly, but she's really enthusiastic and is concerned about each of her students. Learned a lot throughout the course.

Workload:
Manageable workload, pretty strict grading on papers. Grade based on papers, tests, quizzes, participation, and recitation.

Dear Ellen,

Didn't have a current email address and didn't know how to reach you other than this...

It's a pleasure, even if a belated one, to wish you a 'Bonne Anniversaire? and a lovely new Ellen-Year!

Sincere good thoughts and hope to see you again some day....

Love from Ellie in Maine

Annie Geoghegan | FR004 - Intermediate French II | French2005-12-21

Review:
Prof. Geoghegan was hard to follow during class- besides her inability to remain focused on one topic until it was covered, she moved around so erratically that one chose to focus on her movement rather than the information that she was giving. Everything she said could have been read in the text book. Although professing to be always available for extra help, it seems that Prof. G is never on campus. Once you actually get to her office expect her to spend most of the time talking to other professors over your head. Then expect her to tell you that see doesn't have much time but that she is sure you know what you are doing. I did in fact learn from this class but not really as a result of her. Take French 4 with a different professor if possible.

Workload:
Assignments were straightforward and fairly easy. Papers were graded quite hard, but rewrites were always and option with the average of the two taken. Several tests, several quizzes and a final.

Agnes Trichard-Arany | FR004 - Intermediate French II | French2005-11-14

Review:
Prof. Trichard-Arany definitely has her favorites and does not seemed concerned in trying to help her students who really need it. She is good at trying to get the whole class to participate in group activities and calling on everyone. She doesn't explain the grammar very well and expects everyone to know it from reading the section in the book for homework.

Workload:
The workload goes up and down. Sometimes it's just a conversation and grammar but then sometimes it's a composition plus tons of other work.

Saliha Ziane | FR004 - Intermediate French II | French2005-01-16

Review:
Sali is a great professor. She is caring, considerate, and a skilled French teacher. She expects her students to take her class seriously, but she also realizes that students have many classes and many other concerns in their lives. I wish I could have Sali for every French class!

Workload:
Daily workload but not a lot of work. Exams (written by the French department, not the professor) can be difficult.

Ellen Detwiller | FR004 - Intermediate French II | French2004-11-11

Review:
Mme Detwiller is a really cute, nice lady who generally explains concepts well. She can be very animated at times, but it keeps us all awake! She places a high emphasis on pronunciation which, although is a pain, is great in the end. She is also very helpful during office hours. The actual class is relatively boring, and she doesn't necessarily try to make it more interesting. However, I don't know if any of the teachers can/do

Workload:
Pretty reasonable...but leave enough time to do some of the listening exercises.

Annie Geoghegan | FR004 - Intermediate French II | French2004-09-21

Review:
Professor Geoghegan was one of the worst professors I've had at Tufts in two years. Not only did she make me cry on the first day of classes by singling me out and making fun of my speech, she played favorites to such an obvious extent that this was often the only topic of conversation during recitation, during which I also learned nothing. This course was merely a review of all the grammar I'd had in high school and I ended up getting an A- despite the fact that Geoghegan embarrassed me all the time about my poor speaking ability.

Workload:
A bit more than most courses, but mostly busy work with vocab and stuff. Papers were graded leniently.

Agnes Trichard-Arany | FR004 - Intermediate French II | French2004-07-12

Review:
Mme. Trichard-Arany was a very enthusiastic and energetic teacher who emphasized class participation. She was good at explaining grammar points, etc. I only had her for part of the year, as she took maternity leave, but during the time that I had her I thought she was a good teacher.

Workload:
Pretty straightforward, typical amount of work for a french class; however, I thought she was a hard grader.

Agnes Trichard-Arany | FR004 - Intermediate French II | French2004-07-12

Review:
The professor is not very considerate she seems to really have her favorites already 1-if u can speak and 2-if you don't ask too many questions. She might pick on you here or there and is not very supportive of trying to get her students up. If you're bad in French I wouldn't recommend you take French 4 with her because you'll end up being treated unfairly and probably not doing too well. Try and find a teacher who is really concerned with your progress!!

Workload:
Too much work especially if French is not your major. You have about 4-5 pages of work each day and classes are like every other day so if you have 5 other classes might want to advise yourself.

Agnes Trichard-Arany | FR004 - Intermediate French II | French2004-04-10

Review:
Professor Trichard-Arany is probably one of the best French instructors I have had in my life. She is originally French which of course is a plus. In addition, she has a great sense of humor, optimistic attitude and encourages class participation. If you enjoy French and are ready to participate, you will enjoy her course. In addition, she is ALWAYS available to her students and actually encourages them to come and receive extra help.

Workload:
Like any fourth level language class at Tufts, French 4 is moderately demanding with lots of new vocabulary, some very heavy grammar rules, and more reading and writing. Expect to write 4-5 compositions, and encounter some grammar rules that you probably didn't even know existed.
