'Sorry Ben I can't accept that you had two weeks to learn the words. No way will I accept this from anyone from the class'. One of her worst rages yet.

When I was your age I spent 25 hours a day studying French and I always had my dictionary right there... Such a funny teacher says the weirdest things really uptight sometimes but she's fair to everyone. Doesn't give out to people for no reason has a tendency to repeat herself a bit much and her pronunciation is a bit off but other than that she's super nice and helpful

Brilliant teacher, although she does get distracted so easily and bring up her easily distractions un-necessarily "the children outside are very loud" "the pen clicking is annoying" otherwise great!

Had her from first year until third year for French and History and got an A in both for my Junior Cert. Her teaching is probably one of the reasons im studying french at university now.

only cares about results as she sees them as a reflection on her teaching, could care less about her students, patronises and nags at the poor students untill they give up and dont care anymore instead of helping them. Thats the impression i get from class anyway...
