Tufts University: Brigitte Lane - French - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Brigitte Lane | FR125 - French Regions thru Lit & Film| French2005-04-17

I am almost certain this last review is from the same person who wrote the first one. Please, don't make a career out of trashing someone - you certainly don't know a thing about being out there in front of a class and teaching.

While I am certain Professor Lane is not perfect, as none of us are, and that she may be tired and forgetful nowadays, I don't think she is the crushing bore you are making of her (to the point of saying you fall asleep in five minutes). As for overindulging, I am speaking out, and with sincerity, of what I felt and what I have experienced in her classes, not out of love for adulation. I graduated two years ago, and I have nothing to gain from praising Prof. Lane's 'overwhelming perfection'. Besides, why and to whom is it overwhelming? Certainly not to me. She was one of my role models, and I am not embarrassed about talking about her merits.

Unless Prof. Lane is radically different from the one I have met two years ago, she is still the same that passes her enthusiasm with her usually calm self. With regards to authentic cultural materials I mentioned, this is also my actual feeling, because she brought articles, films and documentaries into class. Can you say that films, articles from a given country are non-authentic?

The previous commentator may have found there was a pathetic exaggeration of Prof. Lane's merits in my comments; but his/her needless use of lexical snobbery and thus of intellectual pretentiousness sure did their best to go the opposite way...

I should say it should have sufficed that the commentator has expressed his/her opinions in the first review and I have expressed mine, in the second one. There was no need for rebut, unless he/she is feeling one review is not enough to leave his/her opinion sustained...which it wouldn't be, without the viperish insults found in the second one.
