She is actually a nice person but the way she teaches is awkward. She knows her stuff very well but wants us to write what SHE wants, using the words SHE wants. If not, you get 60%. She can be rude if she does not like you (if you participate in class she likes you, but if you talk while she does she will get VERY mad). If you do what she says, it is easy to get 80%. You should try to avoid her if you can, if not, try to ALWAYS follow her instructions.
do not take her she is such a hard grader and she is so strict and confusing. she is adorable as are her outfits but do not take her
Have her for all my french classes because of my program she is a very hard marker, plays favorites, never cancels classes and makes ends her classes at the last minute. Hope you don't get her and don't have a class right after hers
I did learn a lot from her. She's a really tough marker, so DO NOT slack off. She will not accept late assignments, she will not give second chances, and she isn't afraid of handing out zeroes.
i don't know why some people are saying he, the last time i checked she is a woman. she obviously knows what she is talking about but she isn't very helpful as a teacher because she doesn't know how t
She is a great teacher and very knowledgable. She knows what she is saying and is kind BUT she does treat you like you're still in high school and can be very boring. We do verbs almost all class ever
Diane Lachapelle's rating are mixed up here with Jean Lachapelle's rating. These are two different individuals - and two very different teachers, I should add.
she gives assignments until the last day of classes and she never cancelled her classes !! i agree with the last post: she plays favorites :S
hated her class, she chooses faveourites and treats you like you're in highschool. Threatened to kick me out of class for coughing.
Great teacher, one that makes you think. Classes are fun and entertaining, tests are easy. Very helpful. Has an... extreme sense of humor but he's cool. Made philosophy the highlight of my day.
really nice, actually cares about the success of the students.
XD Best teacher, he is FUNNY and very understanding!
amazing teacher! he's hilarious and treats his students with great respect
He's tough. Not only is he a tough marker, but he's also mean.
Extremely organized teacher that really likes his job. Can't ask for more than this. Tough marker though.
good teacher...clear notes and tells u exactly what to study for tests...just don't come late to his class he hates it
Loved his class!! Very good teacher that makes every class interesting. If you get involved during group activities, you'll learn even more. For tests, know your notes on the tip of your fingers!!!
pretty good teacher, knows what hes talking about and makes it interesting. only thing is that hes kinda closed-minded and tries way to hard to be cool..finishes the class an hour early which is great
Very dry person, she is an okay teacher but very boring and when she explains something, you only get more confused! Makes french class even worst than it already is!!!
She was an okay teacher. Started with the ABC's in French. It was like High School all over again and extremely boring. But if you're new to French it's going to be hard regardless of the teacher.
Great teacher. Lots of reading/quizzes but it's easy if you do the work. He's got his own views and he's pretty open about them. He's open to suggestion but you'd better be able to back yourself up.
Not very hard if you read all the chapters properly. A good man and teacher, but sometimes, I think he doesn't realize that his jokes are a bit on the meaner side and may actually hurt students.
Best humanities teacher! He is funny and open to people. His tests are straighforward and intelligent. He is just amazing.
She really wants you to learn, she won't just pass you to get rid of you, she actually cares. Some people call her picky, but I think that just reflects the fact that she actually cares.
An ok teacher. If you're new to French beware.. she will only speak French in class. Calls on everyone to answer things and gives a lot of written exercises. She knows how to teach though.
Very interesting teacher. He makes philosophy appealing by applying theories to daily life experiences. He's demanding but guess what it worths, i've learnt lots of notions of life from him. Tom Lu
She's really cool and funny, but the class is very hard.
It doesn't matter how good you are in french. If you dont write EXACTLY the way she wants you to she'll say its wrong. Even if theres like a million ways of expressing it. AVOID!!
Demanding,but only to send you in the right direction academically.His classes are fun and you learn a lot.He knows his stuff.Hard marker but fair.Funny guy and cool. Take Him
Demands alot, but will help you acheive a good grade. Funny guy but can cross the line and be a little mean...or says stuff to students in front of the class instead of aside
Very good teacher that demands hard work from his students only to send them in the right direction. His classes are fun, hes funny and knows his stuff, hard marker but fair.
Coolest teacher ever.I`ve never had a better teacher.His classes are hard but its worth it because they are so much fun!!
he comes off alittle "mean" at times and can seem very demanding, but in the end its his insistence that helps u succeed. nice guy, but u will have 2 wrk hard in his class.
Well explained, you'll be forced to learn as much french as possible. If you are usually late or absent, don't take her. If you want to learn, do it.
I understand she might be picky. I had her for a complem. course and this was so easy I don't understand why she didn't give 90 though, never had anythng below that Picky I suppose
Really funny and the coolest teacher at Champlain. Hard marker but very helpful. Very knowledgable. If you are willing to work hard you should take his class.
he's a really good teacher.. he talks as tho he is "one of us" may offend some but mostly makes people laugh.. he's cool most people like him.. hard tests tho!
He's really cool, a great teacher, he makes philosophy so much fun. He is also a very good badminton player. 5/5
She's one of those teachers who will make you learn as much French as possible and I did learn a few things but I'd never take her again.
the pickiiiiiiiiiiiest teacher ever; harddd marker. if what you've done is not what she has in her head, forget it. avoid if possible.
Of course you can manage having him as a teacher, but in the end he is arrogant, biased, and teaches down to his students. He shows little respect to his students, and his marking, I see, as highly flawed. As for his teaching, it is at times superficial i
Great for teaching lower level french classes- You'll learn all your basics and master them. Articulates each word- prepare to work though
She articulates every word, makes you learn PROPER french, and makes you learn all the basics of the french language... Boring class but you learn loads
The coolest yeah, the funniest maybe, but he suerlly has this know about, on how to teach todays students, and that is to be cool.
This was a good class, hard marker but fair. He's also a really good badminton player!
good person, but a bit obtuse and arrogant. hard marker, so try hard and don't slack off. bring up the topic of instincts, say they aren't innate, and try to live and tell about it. he also jumpos around a lot.
i learned alot in her class...she will take time to explain things. loved her class.
hardest french classes ever... but a wonderful woman.
She's a cute/funny teacher. She knows what she wants and she'll get it.
She's a cute/funny teacher. Doesn't specify but always wants you to study @ home
Expects too much from students, clear on work but often assigns useless things
