He is a very passionate and knowledgeable French teacher. He knows absolutely everything about the subject he is teaching which makes it interesting. His exams on books are really easy, but he is an harder marker on his essays. However, it is easy to have a good grade in his class. He is really sweet and there is no graded work outside his class.

Took his class for Le Quebec en Devenir, and it's hands-down one of the most relaxing classes in my schedule. He does all the talking and write all important precision on his notes on the blackboard, so all you have to do is jot them down (there aren't much anyway). He gives out all of the reading, and all of the notes, already printed, in a pack during the first class. His class is basically a summary of sec 3 and sec 4's history classes.

He is the WORST french teacher I have ever had! I studied like crazy and failed EVERY EXAM he gave! one of his exams the class ave was a fail and they had to bel curve the marks! I would never take him again. No way to win in this class. His explanations are not what he tests on. Worst! I recommend not taking him if you aren't forced to.
When I studied a bit, I failed, When I studied a lot, I failed. awful teacher! MY WHOLE CLASS AGREES!

Histoire de l'amour: Awesome teacher with a brilliant sense of humour (I loved his personality so much :)). Interesting classes. Not the easiest of classes but that's to be expected at this level. Some easy marks if you've read the books, and the in class essays aren't so bad if you've prepared. Really helpful :).
