She is a great teacher. Just make sure you are on track of vocabularies and grammars you learn in class. We do about a chapter of the book in 2 weeks. Sometimes I feel rushed but it's not that bad.
Madame is like the walking rosetta stone. I've lost track of how many languages she can speak. I know of at least 5. My french improved tremendously while in her class but she is very intimidating since she is like a language messiah and also a very strict grader. Outside of class she is a great woman. One of the only teachers that I've ever had that will pull you aside and ask about things that are going on in your life.
Very underrated. People dislike her but she teaches in hopes of preparing student for real life rather than textbook life. Most caring teacher ever under a serious and hard outer shell. Really intelligent. Culturally accepting as has many experiences with cultural diversity. She may seem harsh but you will realize by the end of the year that she has succeeded in her own way in teaching French. Very kind to those who deserve it. If you don't work hard, she'll be mean.
She is knowledgeable but she is a hypocrite. Someone called VB's phone today in class so all the students got their phones out to wait till she was done with her phone conversation. She decided no phones were allowed out during her call, so she gets furious and then she singles out her least favorite student and took only their phone for the entire day. She only values her class above all others. No reprieves. She admits she doesn't understand her grading scale.
I had her for German freshman year and it was so weird because she constantly told us that we should've taken french instead and that German sucks. She is the hardest grader I have ever encountered but I improved a lot on writing in her class.
She's awesome, loved having her each year!
Frau VB rocks. I appreciate the time she spends teaching us about the culture as well as teaching us the language. She makes me excited to travel some day.
awesome teacher. not only teaches the language but also teaches how to look at cultures from different perspectives
can be tough, at the beginning of the year but not too bad.
She takes awhile to get used to, but her class is really enjoyable, especially nearing the end of the year.
Good teacher, a real german, not quite to the calibur of Herr Witney, and a boring class, but easy material and a willing commitment by Frau V.B.
one of the best teachers there is and a wonderful person.. anyone who thinks differently is either disrespectful or doesn't like their language
I am not a language person so I did not ejoy her class because she does not teach clearly or thoroughly enough I feel. I felt like we wasted a lot of time in class also. Nice person though. Would make an intersting coffee date. Good person bad teacher.
She is a VERY HARD teacher but a nice person to talk to.
Great teacher! Fun, understandin, cultured..her leather pants crack me up. Keep up your awesomness, VB!! :D
One of the most learned ladies of our time. Everyone must have her at least once.
shes very cold and isn't really nice to people.. the tests are not very easy.. just because she caught ppl in our class cheating doesn't mean other classes dont
Great class, great teacher. She knows a lot and makes it fun to learn french.
She comes off tough, but she's a sweetheart. She can speak English just fine!
may have problems with our language but you will learn stuff in her class
i loved her. An inteligent, cultured, great person and a good teacher. Sweet and nice too
Nice lady but still calls me by the wrong name after three years!!!
So what if s he muddles her English, she's there to teach you French, right? Not English. Probably one of the greatest French teachers ever. Better than Markovich.
Shes hard but good. I didnt get along with her so shes not my fav, but she was fair
when she was mad she used to tell us she had a chicken to pluck with us! who knows what that means, but it sums up the class! i reallly liked her! so nice and understanding
hard to understand but fun to sidetrack so you can talk about europe! the form tests saved my writing grade
thanks for being such a great teacher. you made class interesting and were always there to help me!
