Shes a great French teacher, however i feel like she talks too much, sometimes it can get really boring trying to listen to someone speak for a double and the information just kind of goes in and out the other ear. Wish we did more excercises in class, soome litening comprehensions or watched some videos. Something to keep us busy. "I rest my case"

Disorganised teacher. Knew her french but did not explain it very well. Very muddled and no class structure. Always leaves the room. She may be a nice person but you won't get an A in French in her class.

She needs to talk less in class and have us sit down and actually do some exercises. She explains things to us too thoroughly so we end up not listening and have absolutely no clue how to do anything in the end. Her sheets are seriously helpful though and she does know how to tell you how to fix an essay, your oral speaking or any work you do, she really will correct it and explain how to make it better very well. She's also amazing if you have any problems, with her cuppas and chats :) love ya miss!

Best intentions. Unsure as to her efficacy. Seemed to care about us all though and that is as important a trait in teachers today as any.

All talk and no action. Poor at scheduling. Every few weeks she would have a new initiative for people to work on but never seemed to complete any.
