Mr. Deshan's really nice. He's not as fluent as jacquot but seriously he's SOO much nicer. He's really willing to actually help you improve your french. jacquot literally puts you on the spot and leaves you there. deshan actually helps you out and i always looked forward to going to his class because he made it so fun

Very approachable, do his homework and participate in class and you will have a chance to be one of his favs, I had fun in his freshmen class, and I had a good attitude towards French until Jacquot..

I've had Deshan for 2 years (French 1 and 3) and TAKE HIM!. Learning a foreign language is difficult, but he makes the class amazingly easy. He has his cranky days, but honestly, he's a very good man, and a great teacher. Jacquot is good too, actually the french dept. at our school is excellent in general.

His class actually is really fun. What's better - he's passionate about what he teaches and cares enough about his students so that he constantly looks for ways to improve efficiency with the way he teaches. He does the songs and everything to change things up and help you learn.

His french is really really clear. I had him for french 3, but for 2 and 1 I had Mme. Jacquot. He is unbelievably clear. You'll understand every word he says even if your french is bad, which can't be really said about Mme Jacquot. Although it may be the fault of the language, her speech sounds really slurred, and it's not easily understood. I also felt like he genuinely cared about his students- even if it was tough love at times.

He picks favorites so that determines if you like him or not. Although, many don't. Obsessed with France;forgets we're in the US. Hates Americans. Had him all 3 years-many did not take French4 because

Deshan picks favorite students, and he picks people on which he dislikes. This is why there are people who like him, and people who dont. lame teacher.

From what I've heard, De Shan teaches way better than Jacquot. Although his jokes are sometimes lame, him class is still fun. But yeah, he does pick favors. But at least I was one of his favorites! :]

Compared to Madame Jacquot, Mr. Deshan is awesome. Even without the comparison, he's an awesome teacher. His class would always go by really quickly, but Jacquot's class is so long
