Madame Blitgen knows how to teach French well. She was my French 1 teacher and now I am in French 3 with an awful teacher. If I did not have Mrs. Blitgen I would be failing French 3 even worse! She was amazing, and I am so glad I had her!

Madame Blitgen was a very, very good French teacher. She's fun and creative, but always makes sure you come away with something from the class. She's not usual in elective teachers because her class does require some effort, but as long as you stay on her good side (which isn't hard) you'll enjoy her class.

Mme. Blitgen's class was one of the easiest I've taken. Lots of extra credit, she's willing to help when you need. Just study for all the petites examens and you'll do fine.

Bonjour Madame! It's been 20 yrs since French class and I can still remember how to conjugate verbs and name all of the major works of art by French artists. I continued in college with my studies. Our group (from Swanson) was the first to travel to France. What an experience! Best wishes and thank you for making learning fun and interesting. Merci! -Sophie

Well, though I suspect she is a bit mad she is quite funny. However, she has not been so effective in the way she was teaching us French(i.e.,most of the clas is games and she is lax) bu don't worry Miss B. we all love you
