I took French 12 with Mdme Loselle and she was very intelligent and very passionate about the poetry, prose, and theatre we analysed. She does expect us to be fluent in the French language, but after French 6 you are supposed to be fluent anyways. I really liked her approach to the texts we read--she understood that we wouldn't understand everything so she would re-word it as best she could in order to help us out. Even sometimes she would say things in English in order to lead us on the right track so that class discussion could be better stimulated. I really liked her and am actually taking French 114C with her next quarter and looking forward to it. She is a fair grader when it comes to essays, knows that we have not mastered the grammar yet, and knows that this is still an introductory class to poetry. We do not over analyze anything; and she says basically everything that is important to remember. I really liked her lectures (although they were sometimes boring... they were definitely effective if you could pay attention). I definitely recommend her!!!
Madame Loselle is a true intellect. I've had many passionate professors so far, but even so she really stands out. What I liked about Madame Loselle was that she really cared about expanding our ideas and introducing us to the philosophical aspects of the literature. In the three papers she assigned I tried my hardest to make sure I didn't have any grammar mistakes, but a few would always end up in my final draft. Madame Loselle understands that we're not fluent yet, so while she, like any instructor, would get disappointed when students make careless mistakes by not bothering to check their work, she's sypathetic to people who show improvement and effort over the duration of the course. I really got the impression that the content as opposed to the technical aspects of our work is more important to her than anything else. Even though her office hours attrated many students, she always made time for all of us and she would generously and eagerly extend her hours when we had paper deadlines or tests approaching. Before Madame Loselle's class I couldn't care less about poetry. Thanks to her I now know how to interpret it on a new level and I've grown to have a great appreciatation for the art. I felt extremely comfortable participating in the class. No matter how out there my ideas were, Madame Loselle always encouraged me and kept an open-mind. I highly recommend Madame Loselle to anyone who wants to master language and learn from a kind-hearted professor with a philosophical and profound edge like no other.
I would recommend taking French 12 with Professor Loselle. The course itself is challenging, but she is good at explaining and expanding on concepts and philosophies regarding the works. Just be sure to do the reading and don't be afraid to offer answers in class discussions (or ask for clarification of an issue or question). But I think Prof. Loselle's defining quality is flexibility. A few pieces were dropped from the syllabus so that we had time to thoroughly explore the others; two of the three papers for the class were pushed back to give us more time to write them; she produced a comprehensive study guide for the final exam at a student's request, and eliminated the essay portion of the exam after making the review and "seeing the course through the students' eyes." Just be warned that small, careless grammatical errors on papers will cost you points, but two of my three essays were written the morning they were due, and I thought they were awful, but still got full credit!
