I had in first term for Year 3 Spanish. I will say that you need to study the vocabulary by yourself. He likes to focus on the grammar a lot. His tests are also hard because for every mistake you make

Very fair teacher, mostly because when it seems that you werent paying attention, he doesn't yell at you. Lenient test grader and gives very helpful advice to remembering spanish rules.

Hes one of those old fashioned teachers who think theyre always right and nothing is ever their fault.Makes a mockery of the name teacher- doesn't teach, but still gives tests.

he's ok. The hw is fairly easy. He teaches with the long english words referring to spanish but thats not the point. he uses large terms and the class doesn't understand because he talked about rules

His tests are fairly easy, but it's kind of easy to make some careless mistakes. ALWAYS do the hw. There usually pretty short. His greatest fault is that he seems to assume u already learned the ma

his tests are DROP-DEAD HARD. Never not do a homework, it's your main source of power in this class. Hard to study so just do sleep in class, and enjoy him freaking out when he mishears someone.

He's actually a nice teacher. It's just that his teaching methods are whack. I do think that he grades too low and it's unreasonable. Regardless, he's a nice human being, just a horrible teacher.

He's a great teacher. But bad class notes-he mostly teaches orally. Be attentive b/c he calls on ppl randomly. He gives low grades for the 1st or 2nd marking pd but that is to make you study harder. Study hard !

I've actually regressed in Spanish from having this man as a teacher. He doesnt care about grades-he's told us that specifically. Class is a waste of time, no curriculum, you learn nothing. Do what you can to change teachers

Mr. Garcia is a great teacher because he really wants you to learn. He's very helpful, and lthough the pop quizzes are surprising, if you do your home work and participate in class then your good. Overall he's a great teacher

He's a pretty good teacher, but he is HARD!!! He gives suprise quizzes, but I guess it makes you study. If you seem to understand and work he will help your grade at the end. He isnt that mean, he really will be fair!!!

He is a really nice guy and is a somewhat good teacher, BUT there are some problems with having him as a teacher. For one, he gives surprise quizzes and tests. He is a hard grader as well. I hope he will give a FAIR final!
