He really cares about teaching I can tell. He's also pretty funny at times, and extremely energetic. He freaks out alot about small things and turns red. It can be annoying sometimes, because you'll be really tired. The class difficulty is kind of in the middle, sometimes he goes too fast though.

Sr Meunier is the best spanish teacher for Spanish 3. He is amazing. He is very inspiring person. You learn a lot in his Spanish 3 class. It's not a hard class if you study. He cares and wants everyone to pass. He is very helpful.

Sr. Meunier is a really energetic, engaging Spanish teacher. There is never a dull moment in this class, & you need to always be prepared to answer the question, because he will call on you randomly. He is very passionate about teaching, and I felt very prepared for Spanish 2, thanks to his easy to remember songs and shortcuts. We also watch many videos and a couple of full length movies, which make this class even more enjoyable. And he is always able to explain the material, if needed.

He enjoys his job and really tries to make you have fun in class as well as learn the information. Hes great guy, but at times he can be quite dramatic or emotional. I think it's partly because he lives all alone with his Perros. Hope he finds someone he likes.

He really does care about teaching. He cares about Spanish, and you learning it, but simply does not do enough to help you learn. He freaks out about everything, and I truly believe he is mentally unstable. He will repeatably ask how he is failing you as a teacher, and will become extremely emotional during class. Although he is crazy, he CAN be a fun teacher sometimes, and can be funny. This is a minority of the time, however. He seems to rush through everything and only speaks in Spanish.

Meunier can be so annoying sometimes, especially if I'm incredibly exhausted and I have to perk up for his class. If you're not the most enthusiastic you can be he gets ticked off. But even though he's annoying as hell his class is really easy for me (I hate listening to his stories though). Also, el tiene cuatro perros -- who could forget that when he talks about them every day?

Excellent teacher! Its hard not to pass his class! Drills everything into your head and is very fervid about teaching. However, he can be a bit too dramatic at times and sometimes gets annoying. But for the most part he is helpful and funny. You better pay attention-100% of the time or he'll lecture you and ask "where have i failed you as a teacher?"

I had him for spanish 3, and the man has passion when he teaches. But at times he could get a little too emotional if the class wasn't showing enough effort because he give 110% when he teaches. Try to get involved in class discussions then he'll love you. If you do the hw and do average on tests you should be walking out of the class with a B.

I had him for Spanish 3. He is upbeat, loud, fun, energetic, and a Great teacher. Very glad I got to have Spanish with him. At first his class will seem different in the way that he teaches it but at the end you will wake up and say "Wow, I learned a lot." Guaranteed- will prepare for the next step. He's also very kind and you can always ask him anything and he will always be willing to answer.

He's very loud and enthusiastic which is way different to the norm. If you are one of those people who likes to sit with their friend and talk all class, you're going to have a miserable time. As long as you pay attention, participate, and work a reasonable amount, you should find his class qutie managable. I can understand how he could get on some peoples nerves, but overall he's a wonderful teacher. It would be hard to find someone to match the passion he has for what he does.

BEST SPANISH TEACHER AT UNI!
Extremely energetic, nice and runs a fun class. Brings a lively mood to the learning and tries to liven up the class and get everyone to participate.
Often plays games like Simon Dices, and hands out "dulces" and has little parties at the end of the semester or before breaks
Definately amazing at what he does, drills the vocab, verbs, stem-changes and everything into your "cabeza" and is amazing and passionate at what he does!

I had him for spanish 1 and he's an awesome person but i just didn't like his teaching style. He always did notes on the whiteboard and it was just really messy and unorganized (as opposed to fox). He wasn't bad, just wasn't the best. He's funny and you can tell he loves his job, spanish, etc. so he

He gets so impatient when no one raises their hand and if we dont participate with enthusiam. He doesnt know how to teach and wastes 99% of class time. He talks about the most randomest things that have nothing to do with the class. He is obsessed with the Dogders and Celine Dion. He yells so loud.

He's not to easy, not too helpful, and not to clear, but he has something many teachers lack: Character! He always makes the class exciting in a way that's strange and weird, but also laugh-out-loud silliness. like his songs or ZarGarCar Enjoy his class while you canbefore you get a boring teacher.

A bit over-energetic, but he really cares, and will do what it takes do get you to do well, unlike other Spanish teachers. May seem annoying, but when you get most other Spanish teachers (with the exception of Natan), you'll see how much he actually cares for his students.

He's the funniest teacher ever. He always talks for the entire period. He will always make sure that you pay attention during class. If you have him in the morning, I suggest you to drink caffeine before you go to school. You can never fall asleep in that class.
