Tufts University: Saskia Stoessel - German - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Frau Stoessel is the ideal teacher for an intensive German course. No question the course can be challenging. It is easy at the beginning and many students are lazy and once you fall behind it is very hard to catch up. But if you do fall behind, Stoessel will do everything possible to help you. She will always let you come by her office and talk German. She is understanding and if things are just too overwhelming she will give extensions and work with you to make things bearable. The class was difficult and early (830 or 9 30) but Frau Stoessel always had a smile on her face and genuinely seems to care about her students. She is a wonderful woman and it is very hard to find anything bad to say about her.
It is a fair amount of work. Many students seem to not work for several days and then are just overwhelmed during the tests. If you can do about 30 minutes of studying a night the class is perfectly fine. If you wait til the day before to go over the vocab and the articles you are going to have very bad nights but if you study a little at a time it's not too bad at all. Quia is annoying as sin though but luckily it?s only a small part of your grade and can remind you to study things you wouldn't otherwise think ok. An overall good way to get out of two semesters worth of languages in one semester without it being totally unbearable.
