Olivennes, Benjamin
[FREN W3131] Third Year French Conversation

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Such a sweetie. :)

If you're looking to practice speaking with a heavily accented professor, Benjamin is your guy. Hearing a native Parisian accent is super, super helpful and great for you if you're planning on studying abroad.

Benjamin is hilarious, and makes the class hilarious. Once everyone gets comfortable speaking french with each other, you end up joking around a lot, talking about real things (i.e.: not about going to the supermarket or getting on a plane). We discussed women's rights, french politics, philosophy, and um oysters.

And on the last day of class he brought in lots of food and we talked about oysters.

Benjamin is great. Such a lovable guy.

Workload:

Two presentations, regular homework that was quick and usually played into class discussion, no midterm, secretly no final
