Dr. Gordon Jeff Love is an extraordinary German professor. In addition to speaking English, French, German, and Russian fluently, he is a Yale trained corporate lawyer who gave up law to teach. He is incredibly dedicated, and is best known for his awesome sense of humor. But don't let his goofy nature fool you, he has high expectations for his students. His German class is tough, but you'll learn a lot.
