Tufts University: Eglal Henein - French - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Although Eglal comes across as a very intimidating French woman, she is one of the most helpful and concerned professors I have ever encountered. After a tough grade on my first paper, I went to see her about it and she made me feel ten times better. She expects students to come to class prepared and ready to participate, but sometimes the discussion is nonexistent or really dumb. It helps to have a background in English literature, since analyzing foreign lit is difficult enough.
Eglal invites each class to her apartment for a little dinner party at the end of the semester and it's so cute!
The reading was heavy for a French course, but about what you'd encounter in a typical English class. It helps a LOT to stay on top of the reading, otherwise it's really difficult to do well, since participation is hugely important. The papers were relatively simple, but Eglal is a tough grader, especially since for most students it's the first time they have to write "good" papers in French.
