“I feel like I have a good lay of the land of French diction and will be able to use the resources I’ve gained from this course to figure out the diction for any French song that could come my way. Dr. Beaudette is a great teacher. It’s clear she really knows her stuff and knows how to teach it to students. I would gladly take another class with her.” — 2022 French Diction student
