Comment: Jon is a wonderful GSI. He's taught enough French courses to know what works and what doesn't. He's refreshing and funny and makes all the tenses in French 2 seem interesting (by pulling in contemporary French music and movies, etc). His essay topics are exactly what you'd expect in French 2 and as long as you try your best to incorporate new vocabulary, you'll do fine. He is EXTREMELY helpful and enthusiastic. If you don't understand anything, approach him during his office hours and he will explain it all, no matter how long it takes. (During office hours he doesn't insist in speaking only French, unlike in class, so it helps when trying to learn grammatical concepts). Oh and when we were reading through La LeÃ§on, he would act the scenes out to illustrate them, which was hilarious. Two hours a day, every day? No problem with J Repinecz.
