Comment: Okay instructor, but essays were mostly pointless. Homework was easy, and she really cared about making sure everyone learned. I don't know, I love French but I just didn't really enjoy her class.

Comment: Amazing. Somehow made writing essays enjoyable, enough said. Going to this class was something I looked forward to almost every day of the semester. Grading on essays is fairly tough, but grading on tests is lenient; Professor Shuh is teaching Fr102 again next semester, and I hope she continues!

Comment: What a great instructor! She was enthusiastic, helpful both in and outside of class, and really cared about students. The class is definitely not an easy A, but if you put in time and effort you will do well! I enjoyed the variety of readings we did and felt that both my reading and writing improved immensely. The class had a fairly constant workload, but it was never excessive.

Comment: What makes up the class assignment-wise: three 3-page essays, one 8-10 page literary research essay, two in-class essays, one 15-minute research presentation, occasional quiz, and lots of discussion participation. The class does require a fairly constant workload but it manages not to seem like too much. Shuh seems extremely unenthusiastic in class but is always very helpful in office hours and over e-mail and really wants her students to do improve and do well. Her accent is impeccable. Not a particularly memorable class but good nevertheless. NOT an easy A, Shuh's grading system resembles the French one much more, aka C really is pretty average, A is truly outstanding.

Comment: Really nice professor. She took us to see a play in San Francisco! Helpful in office hours, really wants everyone to do well and improve their french. No final, but occasional quizzes. Lots of homework (essays) and readings. Two essays and one final paper over the course of the semester, along with two in class essays. It might seem like a lot, but it really does help---I feel my reading and writing in french have definitely improved.
