three 3 page papers all semester, gives you a list of topics. never read a single story yet managed to get a B on all of them. he does call on random people to give opinions of the story though. attendance is 40% and the papers are 60%. class can get very boring. overall great guy.

Great person. Very below average teacher. Not very organized and there is never a specific plan of class objectives. Not much work involved overall, but you knowledge of French will not improve by taking this course

Comment:
A very nice guy. Generally just do the readings, hw, etc. and you'll be fine. In the higher French classes he speaks in French about 45-50% of the time so its not too bad. All of his tests are take home. Too many people are mean to him.

Comment:
His class makes me worse at French. He makes grammatical errors while he speaks in French, not that he speaks in French very often in class. He is consistently 5-10 minutes late to class, scatterbrained, and disorganized. His French accent is horrible. I'm a French major and I hate his classes. Can't wait till I finish the major requirements.

He cares a lot about his students. HE speaks mostly in English and as long as you half pay attention and speak sometimes you will pass. All of his tests are take home (including the final) and are all out of a workbook. He assigns mostly readings and a few short writing assignments.

Comment:
He really tries. He cares a lot about his class and his students so I really wanted this class to be a lot of fun. It's simply not fun. But it can be rewarding if you put in the work and practice. He is all for giving extra credit or having class outside. You just have to interact with him.

Def. take Professor Howe over Zielonka if you have the choice. He assigns readings but you never have to do them because he just goes over them during class. The class is so boring its almost unbearable. He says there's an attendance policy but all you have to do is be there for the days you have an assignment due. Such a waste of money and time.

I knew close to no french when I went into his class, and knew even less when I came out. He's the sweetest man, but expect to learn nothing at all.

Nice man, but that's an entirely seperate entity from his teaching ability. He speaks english all class. Don't bother reading, he goes over the readings word for word in class. Sits at/on his desk and talks AT the class for 1 hr and 15 mins. You'll do well, but you'll learn nothing.

I think he needs a change of course. His class is extremely boring and the value of the class is worthless. I can read and write in English- this is supposed to be FRENCH. He is too haughty about himself and thinks he's great! Give it up Zielonka!

Comment:
He is a nice person; however, he is a terrible professor. He sits at his desk and reads straight from the book in English. The class was a waste of time overall, I am literate, I could just as easily read aloud from the book and gain the same understanding. Also, it is very difficult to get above an A- in his class. He gives a lot of A (-)s.

Comment:
Really nice guy, but I question the value of the class. Very easy since he ALWAYS speaks in English, which was not allowed in my high school French class. If you have a good foundation in French you should be fine. Just be sure to study for the tests.

He is a very nice person. However, he always speaks English and this is a concern for a French major like myself. I feel like I'm making no progress whatsoever in my study of French. Again, really nice and he means well. Love the accent too.

This "professor" is a joke. I can't believe they let this guy teach French. I feel like he coudn't get a job in England so he is here! He needs to give it up and go back to England!
