I think I had the wort learning experience with him. He knows what he's talking about, but his way of teaching is very confusing. Picks favorites, has a bad temper.

Had him for Spanish 1. Didn't learn anything except practically the whole script to "pinocho". The class was out of control every day and he got angry very easily and attempted to maintain the class r

Decent teacher with a passion for whatever language he teaches. And when you make an effort in his class, he rewards it, even if you get things wrong. Overall, a good teacher.

Corcos is insane. French 3 was reading a page of the script of Pagnol's "La Gloire de mon Pere" every day. For a year. He tried to teach, but refused to use a textbook. 2 people learned; 15 didn't.

He is a very good teacher and knows his material so well. His teaching style may differ from a typical language teacher's, but they work and will make you successful. He is by far one of the best teachers I've ever had.

Honestly, his teaching style sucked, but you will still learn. I'm now taking a spanish class in uni a few years after I had Corcos's Spanish 1 class, and I still remember half the concepts he taught. In retrospect, not a bad teacher at all.

Corcos is a teacher who is dedicated to his students. he wants them to master the language they're trying to learn, and although the classroom environment may be disrupted often, you still learn a lot in his class. i've been in his class for four years now, and i think that time spent in his class was worthwhile.

Corcos knows his stuff, and if you're willing to do the work then you'll learn your stuff too. But most students don't do their work. And then they complain about not knowing Spanish or French.

I took French with him over a decade ago. Tough teacher with an off-the-wall sense of humor (you'll find him either hilarous or insane, depending) but you LEARN in his class.

He's a great teacher; his method sticks, especially the songs that we're forced to sing. He's a bit cuckoo, btui it makes his class fun.

He can be insane, but I think it comes from his frustration of most of his students not doing the work assigned to them; he's a good teacher and is hilarious.

Mr. Corcos teaches us odd songs and has us do clay as opposed to actually learning Spanish. One can fail every test and still get a B. Maybe he used to be sane.

Although many people do not learn very much in Mr. Corcos' class, that is a result of their own laziness, not his method, which offers so much to those who care

his methods are incomplete; he focused on minutiea, meaning we didn't gain an understanding of french, rather the plus-que-parfait only.

The "corcos method" is wonderful, and the reason it doesn't work for some people is that they don't do what he says. Ne me quitte pas.

The only thing I learned in that class was preterite v. imperfect. We learned very little vocabulary which is hurting my current spanish grade.
