She is probably the sweetest teacher ever but she's kind of a confused lady. We would practically spend the whole class period checking over the homework rather than learning something new. She also grades people easily so even though we don't learn much in French-it's an easy A.

I had Madame Torreele last year for French III. She's a very easy grader, but you still have to pay attention if you want an A. If you got an A in French I and French II you'll probably still get an A. Postpones quizzes and tests a lot. A very nice lady though. And gets easily distracted!

She is the most nicest sweetest person in the entire world but she is the worst french teacher in the world, you go from not doing anything to taking quizzes every day on things you never learned

She's such a nice lady, but I hadn't learned a single thing in French 3. At first it was ok, there's not much work but then you realized that you could be using your time differently.

She's really sweet, and goes off on adorable tangents during her lessons. I took French 1 with her, and honestly, I did learn a lot. Her accent is very light and easy to understand, but if you're taking a more intensive, AP level French class, Madame Herzog can probably hekp you more.

she's such a wonderful lady but she cannot or does not teach. she's also very hard to anger but she tends to not like you once you do so. advice: just smile and nod, she'll love you.

Easy but we LEARN! Sometimes teachers make you feel class is OK because it is hard and confusing. I am glad I am in French class.

I've had some horrible teachers before, and it's lucky that here French is taught by an actual Francophone. She might digress sometimes, but it's interesting!

She's a wonderful lady with lots of stories, but not much of an effective teacher. I learn more from the book. Her frequent speaking practices are helpful tho
