Peter is amazing! He is a great Professor and is very understanding and accommodating. However, the nature of the course is incredibly fast-paced and I took it as someone who had never taken French before... which I don't necessarily recommend. If you have a fairly easy semester and hours to dedicate to weekly language tables, two French events, phonetic sessions (30 minutes a week in addition to class five days a week), studying for weekly exams, and nightly homework assignments—then you will get a lot out of this course! It's also a good class if you have some basic French knowledge—which it felt like everyone else in my class did except myself and like two other people. This class is incredibly useful and I was able to manage an A because Peter is so accommodating, but it is definitely a huge time commitment.
