Even as one of Mrs. Dugo's A students, I still did not feel she was a great teacher. My advice is to pay attention and you will be fine (homework will not be stressful and quizzes will be easy.) Btw, expect 20 minutes to be taken out of class time because of her talking by the way. I do not recommend her because she will not call on you if you already went and how preachy she is (in a good but long way). Honestly, if you can tolerate this teacher you are a match made in heaven.

She had made a new seating chart and everyday yells at me that it's not my seat. I always raise my hands to answer the question or ask one she will look me in the eye and then ignore me. She has class favorites who do whatever they want but if the people she hates don't even do anything she'll yell at you. The only learning you get is from the excessive amount of homework and in class all we do is go over it. I was really excited for french but now the class is the most painful part of my day

Madame Dugo is very caring for every student and makes sure that you understand the material well. She is always looking for ways to help the students and makes sure you understand all the nit-picky details of the French language. She is extremely knowledgeable and always makes her class fun with all of the cultural activities that we do. I love how nice she is and I am so glad I chose to take French in her class.

Learned more from the textbook, I think. She is an okay person, but not a good teacher. Very unorganized and has favorites. She isn't fair at all.

Madame Dugo is a horrible teacher. If you can still change your language I would do so right now! At the beginning of the year she seemed very nice and knowledgeable, until it got down to actually teaching us. I must admit that her little verb songs help with memorization. But otherwise, I would crack open that textbook and start teaching yourself the language. And don't even think about asking for a pencil, or you'll get detention like me. And she stopped having crepes. Good luck in French :)

After having Dugo for 3 years, I'm glad I don't have her for a fourth. An extremely easy class, so if you want to get an A, opt for this class; but often boring, since she treats you like a child and assumes you never study or pay attention in class. If you want to learn French, it's a great class, since it's easy to get involved (she's obsessed with her favorites) and learn, but avoid it if you don't like a teacher who is personal and gets in your business - she calls home if you don't show up.

Dugo is not well with large groups of people. She gets stressed out and becomes unreasonable. She's nice, but is not the kind of teacher i learn much from.

Okay, everyone who thinks Mme. Dugo is a horrible teacher must be an idiot, of course, because her lessons are so easy and if you were to actually put the time and effort to learn a thing or two about

I hate her. She's the only one who teaches French 5 - 6 and I'm stuck with her. She get off topic and always make sure you only have 5 minutes or less to do your tests. Pretty sure I just failed Ch12

she's a cool person. i like her personality and she's funny but she's not a very good teacher. she expects you to pretty much know french like a native speaker.

The amount of homework given in her classes is negligible. Always very fun in class. I can't say we've learnt that much, but we're going at a snail's pace. She speaks many languages--very interesting.

I like Madame Dugo! I currently have her for French 3-4, and she is very enthusiastic about the subject! She's understanding, and the homework is not hard at all!

Mrs.Dugo is an AMAZING friend! Although not the greatest teacher, her class is a BLAST!! Bound to make many friends that will last in her class. Lots of homework.

Was my teacher for Spanish 1-2. Hated her greatily; she was unhelpful and uninterested. Handed out worksheets and assigned bookwork, but never actually taught.

Demanding work-load, but the class is really fun and, though occasionally stressful, very rewarding.
