Comment:
Nice and caring guy but often gets distracted so we never stayed on schedule. Textbook focused, he spends class reviewing the grammar and litterary assignment. Assignments are pretty easy, just listen to his hints in lectures. Test are closed book Cameras & mic required for lecture. If you can take it in person I would cause it goes faster.

Andrew is easily my favorite prof I've had so far. He is super caring about each individual student and is ALWAYS available via email or during office hours. He teaches entirely from the textbook (fine by me). Also, attendance and participation is a part of your grade, so don't skip and participate/do the homework and you will be fine in his class!

M. Andrew Osborne is one of the best instructors at the university. He's passionate about teaching (and the Jets), and really wants every student to learn and understand the material. His office is almost always open for questions, and he provides supplementary exercises which he is happy to mark. Attendance and participation are mandatory.

Amazing prof. Easily accessible, replies to emails almost instantly and is always prepared to help a student out. He doesn't have much to do most of the time and would love for his students to give work to look over. Would take a french course with this prof again. Skipping is not an option for this prof as you get marked for attendance as well.

He is so passionate about French and don't worry if you've NEVER done French before he will bring you up to speed do your part he definitely does his. Participation grade counts, he has flashcards with names of students so don't think you can just sit and not say a word in his class. DO THE EXTRA assignments he gives, he likes it & it will pay off

He is a very kind and helpful prof. He'll always answer emails and take time outside of class to help you. He is passionate about french & wants his students to succeed. The textbook and attendance is MANDATORY. You are learning a new language so be prepared to pay attention in class & take time outside of class to study and tests wont be too hard

I absolutely loved Andrew Osborne as a prof. No notes but the textbooks are rarely easy to follow along with so you don't have to worry about the lack of notes as long as you study from the text. His tests are fair and whenever i asked for extra exercises, he would email me at least 3-4 per unit.

His lectures DO NOT facilitate notetaking. The textbook is actually a workbook, which he will only read and expect you to know the material. NO room for writing anything down. He will call out names to answer homework, and he won't be super helpful with explaining his expectations on ANY of his tests. Most people I know have been getting Cs. Bad.

Professor Osborne is a very good teacher. He is very accessible outside of class and always willing to help! There is a lot of homework and several quizzes. You must study often and keep up with the work. Attendance is also marked. I would highly recommend taking French with this professor. Very helpful and nice towards individual students.

The only and most thing i hat about this prof is that it barely write anything in the board!! no writing on the board, no slides!!! Can you handle a course where its prof who teaches grammar verbally all the time without using any slides or class board??? if yes, then this kind prof is for you.

You will learn a lot in his classes. He is very clear and classes run at a good pace. He is an extremely fair grader and tests are always on material covered, no surprises. He demands your full attention and will call you out for texting in class which I loved. He is the top French grammar instructor at the university.

He is a wonderful professor, hard marker but very fun to listen to and easy to approach for help. He breaks down things so you can understand what the text book is saying. He gives plenty of opportunities to increase your marks and gives a reasonable amount of homework. I highly recommend him!

I'm a 4th year french major, and the two courses i took with him were my favourites. Best prof I've had in university. His explanations are clear and precise, class moves at the perfect pace. They're grammar courses so the subject matter isn't the most fascinating but he manages to make it less dull. Fair grader. Very willing to give extra help.
