the class is easy for me since i'm fluent and i am a teacher's pet. she concentrates on speaking the language, not so much on written or the culture. she's a very sweet woman. energetic and humorous. she grades on improvement, scores, and participation. a little unorganized and forgetful but a good teacher overall

i have taken 4 years of french with ms. larson and still cant string a sentence together. not that i havn't done well in her classes its just she doesnt really get teachin.tips: 1. bring her food (chocolate is best) as often as possible, 2. mess around a little in class, in a not abuseive way, playfuly, 3. watch her/ pinicale like a hawk, she will mess up ur grades at LEAST per year.... aside from that she is great and you will have fun

She's one of my favorite teachers by far. She's a little odd, but in a good way. If you want to pass her class, make sure that you get on her good side early in the year and try not to talk when she is. She gets upset easily. There's barely any homework, just learning vocab. Don't fall behind or it gets really difficult. Make sure you ALWAYS have your workbook and do all the extra credit oppurtunties that you can. They're simple. She may not be that great a teacher, but she's a very sweet person

oh what to say...she's a great person and i love her to death but, unfortunately, she hasn't quite perfected the french language (but she thinks she has) and she grades based on her mood and/or favorites which can either be a blessing or a curse. she's a really sweet person, though...just needs to work on her knowledge of the language she's teaching. je vous aime, madame!

I love this teacher. She makes learning french fun, and even though everybody claims she forgets things... she has never lost a paper of mine or anyone in my class i know about. She tries her best to give everyone a chance to succeed, and i think that by the end, everybody can speak french. that's all that matters!

She is your regular space cadet teacher. As an example: We took a test, but, because we had little time, she saved the listening part of the test for another day. When she gave us the test back, she had graded them (on a scantron), just so we couldnt change any answers. But, it also gave us the answers for the listening part. That's the most space thing Ive ever seen. But, she is nice and wants us to learn.

She can be kind of out of it and lose stuff-just be sure to keep track of all your work. She's an amazing person and a really great teacher, though.

Ehhhh... she's ok.... i don't like her teaching style very much. She needs to come back down to earth. I like that she is kinda easy and doesn't give homework, other than studying and reviewing vocab, but thats no big deal. As I said she's ok, not great.

she is a nice person, but her grading is completely made up and she tends toward favorites, she also forgets things/looses them all the time. she also has the WORST accent for french, so don't think you will learn along those lines...

Is it me or is Madame a little out of it sometimes? She is quite nice if you get to know her though. Her French is a little bogus, however.

Mrs. Larson is definitely a teacher who knows her French and cares about her students. Sometimes she can be a bit scatter-brained, but overall it's great!

French 4 is the EXACT same as French 3. Seriously, as long as you understand what she says, you'll get an A in the class.

When it comes to this grading scale, she deserves all 5's because we can go in to see her for help, or to clarify stuff, but she is a little unprepared.
