Very unhelpful. He really did not seem to care about his students or how they were doing in class. Also very unhelpful outside of class. Not interested in talking to or helping students AT ALL. He was also a little rude and condescending. The class itself was pretty easy though. Two short papers and participation points (which basically consists of saying "here" during roll call) are all that is required.
Professor Thomas est le meilleur professeur dans tout le departement francais, selon moi! :) Il est genereux et ambitieux... okay, I'll start writing in english! He is the best professor that I have ever had within the French department. He really does care about the student's welfare. He will go the extra time to make sure that you understand. His energy is contagious and he pepps up the class within minutes of its commencement. He is an extraordinary and an extremely valuable resource to the French dept. I am extremely happy that we have this great guy in the dept to help students find their way within the dept! :)
