The first year of French she explained everything and made sure that we all understood everything. However, come the second year and that just stops. We move at an embarrassing pace and then we try to cram 3 chapters at the end of the year. She definitely has her favorite and non-favorite students, and she allows personal issues to reach the class. So for first year Frenchies, everything will be fine, but be ready to study on your own, because you will not be getting help from her the 2nd time.

She really always seems to be in a good mood for my period, and she explains everything a dozen times until everyone understands it. She really makes sure you know what you need to succeed in French.

She can not teach Spanish, but is overall an ok French teacher. But she plays favorites all the time

Madame is a fairly dedicated teacher whose abilities are often eclipsed by her unpopularity—she makes an effort to teach, but not everybody tries to learn and then blames her. She also plays favorites—a lot—and spends time running the extracurricular L'academie Française/Société Honoraire de Français and the French Club.
Not a great Spanish teacher, from what I've heard.

Ms. Kim (Madame) is really rude and loves to yell at innocent students. She isn't very helpful and makes students' eyes suffer!

Madame Kim's class is reeeeally easy to get an A in if you put in just a litttttle bit of effort. Her accent training program is fairly helpful for the select few that get in--she does play favorites.

Take it if you know French, otherwise, avoid. If you know French, the A couldn't be easier. Stay on her good side, be quiet, though passing notes is fine.

I've been in her class for 3 years now. Every year she gets worse, and I don't think that she even cares anymore. Make sure you do well on all of the tests/quizzes because she doesn't give very many.
