He does in fact teach, just not as much as some teachers. I learn a lot in his class.
Mr Lane is an intersting teacher. He's honestly a great person with a great personality, and he clearly knows his Spanish. However, if you get on his bad side one time, you'll be on his bad side for the rest of the year and you will be miserable. He doesn't exactly teach, and he gives you a paper with notes on it. His paper he gives you is basically all you need anyway. Just study that and you'll be fine, but otherwise don't expect to really learn in his class, he doesnt exactly teach
Even thought he goes off topic A LOT he's actually a great Spanish teacher. When he teaches it's clear and on point. Definitely one of the good Spanish teachers at Santiago.
He's a pretty cool, relaxed teacher. It's true though- you either love him or hate him. He goes off topic a lot of the time, but when he does teach it's understandable and he really knows his stuff. Tests are easy IF you study otherwise you'll probably fail.
Going through previous IB exams my classmates are realizing that Juan Carril has not taught us over half of the content :/
He was not here the day before our IB Math Studies Exam and we needed a lot of help. Also the Friday before he thought it was more important to help the 11th graders than help the 12th graders prep for their exam.
Thanks Juan Carril
Here's the thing - students either hate Mr. Lane or love him. And that relationship changes every day. He's a great teacher, don't get me wrong. He teaches clearly and in English, thank goodness. He'll make sure everyone keeps their grades up, too. But sometimes he gets off topic and rants about the strangest things. Sometimes he's patient, sometimes he's really not. Everyone is cautious in that class, and when there's a sub - sighs of relief and cheers all around.
teaches at extremely slow pace, talks about off topic random things sometimes and singles out students for chewing gum. kind of goofy, and makes puns and corny jokes. trys hard to be funny, sometimes is, doesnt really check your homework
Amazing teacher, wish I could have him next year too! A lot of people are judgemental of him but we know he's chill. Rock on Mr Lane!
oh man. he is the best spanish teacher ever. hopefully i get him again for spanish 2
the By far best spanihs teacher that i have ere had!
