I had him in 9th grade for Spanish 1. I wish I could have had him all 3 years. Nieman is one of THE most interesting people I've ever met. His class is very easy but you still learn. To pass, all you need to is memorize basic vocab and grammar. Just memorize the notes you learned that week. He often goes off on a tangent about his life and is amazing.

Awesome stories and he's such a funny and nice guy, sometimes he gets off track when he's teaching, but his system is very straightforward so you always know what you have to get down. Must study a lot to do well on tests and finals. He's caring towards his students education and believes everyone can do well if they tried.

I've been out of IHS for a while, but I can still remember he was my all time favourite teacher. His stories are inspirational - he makes class interesting with them, while still teaching the language with clarity and professionalism. Remembering the class kind of makes me want to go back. :)

His syllabus takes 2-3 days to go over, but when he tells us his stories of his travels, he practically takes up the whole class time. He goes on full detail. His teaching is very simple

Herr Nieman was also one of my favorite teachers. He really is very passionate about the German language and his stories of traveling aboard were very inspirational. He really gives you a great sense of adventure and he also instills in his students, a love of life. It's very hard to find a teacher that can combine the passion of learning with the passion of life. I am glad to see that he is still a favorite teacher at Indy. The Der Kommissar films were the best! Class of 1987 and a World Traveller!
