It was fun, very engaging. The instructor Alejandro encouraged us to converse with each other with the new phrases we learned.

It was a good class. Well run overall. I was looking for a different learning technique because I'm terrible at languages (that's why I'm giving it 4 stars). But if you're looking for a traditional language class in a friendly environment I would recommend it.

the teacher had great vibes and seemed cool but the class itself seemed to be more advertisement. i think it's great if you, the learner, want to get an overview of how the actual future classes may be but i was under the impression that it was going to be an actualllll class :P

This class was fun! The only bummer is the teacher said he wouldn't be the instructor if we took the class for the entire semester, and it would have been great to meet the teacher who would end up being the instructor for the full thing.

This course was such a pleasure that I looked forward to it each week. I've never had any ability with languages--and was terrified--but this class had me speaking in French right away. The class was small (between 4-6 people each week), which made it very personal. In class we spent time answering questions in French, conversing together, reviewing homework, learning new lessons, and practicing reading comprehension and pronunciation. The instructor, Gregory Rittiner, is smart and funny and an excellent teacher. Il est un professeur merveilleux! Each week he found new ways to get us speaking and practicing what we'd studied, which kept the classes interesting. He supplemented the textbook with additional handouts, including songs and poems, and he made every class lively and fun. There were a lot of laughs. A LOT. But he also challenged us and kept us focussed and on-task. I highly recommend this class and this instructor. J'adore cette classe.
