Laurence is one of the best teachers I've had. She is very concerned about whether or not you're learning French and makes it fun. She's really funny. Her tests are very fair and she prepares you really well for them. The final is just like the tests, only longer and she prepares you really well for that too. I highly recommend getting her if possible.

Laurence is incredible! She is an extremely effective teacher that left me truly able to speak french fluidly and confidently. When I first got to class (3 days late) I was overwhelmed by the amount of homework, a few workbook grammar assignments and a small composition but you slowly get used to it. The frequent compositions really help improve your writing. We watched a few cool films in class as well as studied big themes such as politics, family, education.

Laurence is extremely punctual and easy to communicate with. She answers emails immediately. There are 3 compositions and 1 optional one... if you take time and apply what she discussed in class you will get an A-/A. There are 3 midterms which are very simple (a few grammar sets, a vocab section and a composition). The final was a little more challenging because there was so much writing on it! 4 short answers and one long composition along with grammar and vocab.

Overall Laurence ROCKS! Take her if you can. I got an A.

I can't say enough good things about Laurence. She is not only an effective professor, but one of the sweetest people I've met. I was having difficulty at the beginning of the class and she was very understanding and helpful and by the middle of the quarter I was doing fine. She's really funny and her accent is adorable. If you go to class almost every day (which I know is difficult since it's 4 days a week), you should do well on the exams. She's not out to trick you. She truly wants you to learn the material and do well. You should also go to class as often as possible because she takes roll and incorporates that into your overall participation grade. Speaking of that, it's important to not be shy and to participate in the class discussions as often as you can because this can help you out if you do not do too well on the exams and papers. Also, she assigns homework on most days which can get a little annoying, but I think it's a good way to get us to consistently practice our French. I strongly encourage you to attend her office hours if you are having any trouble at all because, like I said, she is extremely helpful. Laurence is a great professor and I highly recommend her for French 6.

Granted Laurence is a really great person to talk to and interact with, I felt like she didn't even really know what she was teaching us in this class. It was a class on description in our essays and I constantly found myself being tested on grammar. Also, I have no idea how the grading went down. I'm not going to complain much, but I dont think I'll take another class with her because there wasn't much structure. On the flip side, class was never boring.

Laurence is an incredibly sweet, nice and open-minded person. Her classes are a lot of fun. Her French is very charming. She encourages you to participate, helps you with any questions or difficulties you may have, she's always available at office hours and she really cares about her students. To all those complaining about her giving homework on a regular basis... Of course she gives you homework, this is college and I would assume that if you want to learn something, you should expect that. She's very understanding and she pushes you to truly improve your French. I'm taking Fr101 and I can definitely see that my written skills are so much better now. Take her!
