I can't highlight enough how good this course is. Zsombok does an amazing job cultivating an atmosphere of participation that improves your French whether you like it or not. Essentially all classes are structured so that there's an equal amount of lecture and discussion, where students talk in small groups or with the whole class. The entire class is in French. The class meets five times a week, plus one 30-minute phonetic session and one 45-minute attendance to the language tables each week. The amount of time dedicated to the class each week substantially reduced the amount of time I had to dedicate to other courses. There are homework assignments every night, but usually they take between 20-30 minutes. There's one exam each week and one mini project each week that culminates with a presentation toward the end of the semester. Zsombok is passionate, engaging, and enthusiastic about learning French. He encourages learning and makes the process so much fun.

This is a super socio-linguistics heavy class. Pretty much every homework assignment is a dense article on the state of francophone societies across North America. That being said, this class was super informative and I definitely learned a lot from it!! Prof. Zsombok is super accommodating!
