I hated her until I realized that although I didn't realize it, she taught me french better than any other teacher. It's mostly because she is actually french rather than someone who barley speaks or knows of french culture but is still teaching it.

The only thing she can teach well is vocab she uses all these weird noises and movements. Class seems like its 1000 hours long. Also bipolar. Tests and quizes are super easy. If you do bad on homework/test etc shell let you redo it give you 100%

Madame Godfrey is the best teacher I've ever had! She is super helpful, very funny, knowledgeable, and always makes class really fun! Her work isn't too hard but helps you a lot, and she is available after school on Mondays to help you if you need it. Amazing teacher! You should really take her class!

Class is very easy, an easy A if you know what to do. But she loses work. ALL THE TIME. Just over night my grade dropped 6 percent into a B for no apparent reason. Don't be surprised if you end up doing more work than you deserve to be accredited for.

All these kids are complaining about learning. If you wanted to learn, why don't you just go read the book? Sure Godfrey is a slack teacher, but she still finds awkward ways to make her class fun. She doesn't make you learn "subjunctif" or whatever because barely anybody uses it. Stop hatin.

She is a kind-hearted person, but really gets on your nerves. she tells horrible jokes and expects you to laugh, and she will ALWAYS laugh at her own jokes. also, when youre taking a test, she'll swing by with a big smile on her face and sing lala laaaaa laalaa. Its annoying and makes it soo hard to concentrate.

godfrey is nice. she knows what she is talking about, but isnt really good at communicating it through to her students. ask her for extra help, listen in class, and do your homework! her tests are relatively easy. she accepts late homework as well, so just keep that in mind so you dont freak out if you forget ur homework. the only problem with homework is you rarely know what it is. she's not really clear about what the homework is, generally. and when she is, she changes her mind about it a lot

Mme. Godfrey is a very nice person. She will help you as best as she can and make you feel good about asking questions as long as you ask her. Just pay attention and come to class. If you are one of the people who sleep in class and are often absent and doesn't participate, she won't want to help you. The only problem is her clarity. You hardly ever know the homework and the criteria but ask her after class and she'll tell you-just not too often or else she'll scold you for not listening.

I dropped french at semester because I couldn't stand this class but Godfrey is actually a good teacher. All you have to do is pay attention and laugh at her jokes and she'll give you an A. No matter what...she gives soo much EC, like on random things. She just actually wants to teach the students and hates it when kids are there and not paying attention, which actually makes a lot of sense.She doesn't answer questions though!Don't even try to ask..you will get shut down!

I am tired of everyone at school being so harsh about Mme Godfrey. She is a phenomenol teacher and person; I have been influenced and inspired by her throughout my entire high school experience. She has been my favorite teacher without a doubt. You must be openminded and try hard to participate in her class. It is not a hard A to get, and French class doesn't require a tremendous amount of work. She is one of the funniest people I know, and always has something witty to say, and she really, real

I had her last year (Freshman year) in AP Language. On eof the best teachers I've had, Extremely funny. Take care to get on her good side, do the work and you'll have your A and pass the AP test (with a 5!). Essayez de ne la mettre pas en colere et faites attencion aux choses qu'elle dit, puis vous n'aurez aucune de problemes.

Mrs. Godfrey is an amazing person overall. She has a good heart and doesn't put up with people's crap, which some people apparently consider "mean." She expects people to fend for themselves and be respectful and self-sufficient and there is nothing wrong with that. She likes to laugh and tries to make the class laugh, too. People that don't like her don't understand her humor, don't like French and/or are bitter because they don't have the grade that they want.

It is true, Mme Godfrey is not for everyone. I actaully really liked her. You have to get her humor though. I personally thought she was hilarious, I had a great year. She is not always clear of what she wants, but it is so easy to do well even with her disorganization. It is a bit difficult to explain her but you either love her or hate her and she feels the exact same way about you.
