Hey, Im taking French 1Z06 this year. Definitely a WONDERFUL COURSE to take. It takes up 6 units, so you have it for 2 semesters. It's honestly amazing.
The prof, Madame Gallier-Morgan is one of the sweetest, most patient, most upbeat professors I have ever met. She has to be so patient to deal with our Canadian-accented French at primary school level, haha.
But yea, ALL the test and exam questions come from the CD (you actually have to put work into it)
And yes, I went to Quebec for 6 weeks last summer, and this course is helping regain/improve my French skills. It definitely hits on the basics. LOTS OF GRAMMAR. Not a lot of vocab.
KEY RULE: IF YOU PUT THE EFFORT INTO THIS COURSE, THE PROF IS SEE IT SHINE THROUGH AND WILL WHOLE-HEARTEDLY HELP YOU OUT.
