    I believe Carol Hofmann is the French department head and doesn't actually teach any of the French 2/3 classes. As a class, I found French 2 and 3 to be pretty similar to the high school levels of French 2 and 3. If you've taken French in HS, then it shouldn't be too difficult. They are mainly grammar classes. However, if you started taking French at USC, they can be pretty fast paced.

    I took French in high school and French 2 at a two-year college this semester, but the credits transfer to USC as French 1.
    This doesn't difficult at all then, thank you!:)
