Comment: I'm so grateful that I took the class with Madame Timmons. She is really really really nice, elle est tres gentille! She tries her best to help us learn the language, and she puts in extra effort if we need more help. I don't know any other professor/lecturer who would hold review session/office hour for the entire dead week! She's the best!

Comment: She's super nice, but if you miss class, beware! There's no gradebook on bspace, so you don't really know where you stand. She also doesn't post homework and only announces it in class. Even still, it's somewhat unclear, so it's super easy to miss out on homework assignments/instructions. The midterms were pretty easy, but the final was a lot more difficult, which took me by surprise.

Comment: Nelly Timmons, one of the best french instructors you could get in terms of friendliness and helpfullness. I blame the structure of the course set by the department for my lack of french knowledge

Comment: Nelly Timmons is the best! She really cares about her students understanding class, but she rarely if ever resorts to speaking English to help. She is really good at speaking French at all times but also having her students understand. The exams weren't too hard, but definitely required a little bit of study time for an A. As long as you do your homework (super easy) and show up consistently, this class is great!

Comment: Best French teacher I've had so far at Berkeley! She's really nice and chill about turning in assignments so as long as they're done and that you don't push this privilege. I love her accent (she's native french!) She's such an incredible, wonderful, nice professor.

Comment: Professor Timmons is ALWAYS willing to help. She is a sweet lady and wants to make sure that you understand what is being taught. You'll have work every week (as expected for a language class) including compositions that she grades rather generously--she knows you're going to make mistakes. The exams are fairly easy as well. Just stay on track and you'll be fine.

Comment: Nelly is amazing. She is incredibly helpful and, if you ask, willing to give out any type of extra practice exercises/explanations that you need. The final was actually surprisingly difficult, considering how easy the rest of this class was, but if you know the topics covered in class, you'll be prepared.
