FREN 1001, 1002: Introductory classes in French, first and second semester. Courses taught both at North Carolina State University and the University of Georgia. Online platforms used: Moodle, eLc, iLrn and MyFrenchLab.
“Madame Montlouis-Gabriel offers wonderful enthusiasm and absolutely prompt returns on all coursework with careful responses to both correct and incorrect answers. In class, she respectfully ensures we understand proper pronunciation and sentence structure- and is very aware of common mistakes American students learning French might confuse. Generally, I would really like to emphasize how considerately Madame responds to our attempts. She is always pleasant and positive regardless of how silly we must seem- and she never laughs at us but we do laugh a lot as a class.”
“I thought Madame Montlouis-Gabriel did a fantastic job creating an atmosphere both inside and outside the classroom that engendered learning and the comfort to ask questions.”
“The way that this course was taught, with a lot of in-class discussion, helped me a lot and it was taught in a different manner than my past French classes here at UGA, but this method helped me learn French more practically.”
“I really enjoyed the wide variety of topics that we went over in class, especially in regards to our addressing recent events. It was interesting to learn about different cultures’ perspectives on different events, and having to discuss them in French helped me to understand French better.”
“Her greatest strength is her ability to facilitate and stimulate a discussion and knowing when to make a way for the students to speak.”
“I like that this course provided us with experiences that are useful in other contexts outside the class. The class has a professional atmosphere so the students were expected to act and speak in such a manner that is acceptable in different situations”
