She's intimidating at first, but overall, she is a helpful and kind teacher. Pronunciation and homework is everything in her class. Her "orals" which is basically her listening to you vocally state your HW answers, is about 50% of your grade. So BS'ing your work will not help you. The bright side to all this is that you learn a lot in her class, and as long as you pay attention, you will succeed.

Had her for the first time in french 3 so it was kind of scary at first but she's so funny and a really good teacher. If you do your homework and listen to her corrections she will like you.

She'll make your pronunciation flawless, and you pretty much remember everything you learned. You'll also learn a great deal of french culture and slang.

shes just horrible. shes so harsh. at the beginning of the year, she told the entire class i had a bad grade because i messed up on some homework and orals. everyone likes her cause shes a "good teacher". who cares? honestly, its french. most students will probably never use it anyway.

She is REALLY nice. For some people, she may seem like a mean person, but if you understand her humor, it's not that bad. She is very helpful and the more you talk to her privately, more she likes you

She is one of the best French teachers that you can learn from. As long as you stay on top of things you will do fine in her class. She does have orals that take some time to get used to though

Great teacher but plays favorites and its very hard to ask help from her. But overall i learned alot in her class. She can be unexpected and expects you to kow the new material as soon as you learn it

Nice but has so many mood swings. Hardcore favoritism. Learn/understand things quickly. I feel its really intimidating asking her for help esp cause she has mean humor. Orals are nerve wracking too.

She's really nice and you can learn a lot of French. But yeah, you need to be totally up to speed, and if you don't understand something you get the heat for it. Sometimes, you'll learn something the first day and then if you don't get it she'll yell at you. Even so, she's fun and you learn tons.
