Welcome to hell... i mean french, pray that you get another teacher, if she hates you from the beginning of the year, that will never change even if you try, she will give you a hard time, zero encouragement, makes you fell and about yourself, once made a student cry after class, after she said why he bothers taking this class. Zallen is truly a bad teacher, won't offer help, really does have her favourites....
Ms. Zallen is an amazing teacher!!! She is nice and her class is really easy! :)
Marks based heavily on how much she favourites you. I'm in her Honours class, so we all raise our hands, but she'll only give participation marks to the students she likes no matter how many questions you answer. Easy marker on orals, she doesn't pay much attention so if you say you said something, she'll believe you. Tougher on test compositions and marks very hard for projects. If you're decent at French, expect 86%-95%
Awesome teacher!!! Her tests are not really hard and super nice!!! She will only like you if you're hard working, if you participate in every question, and if you do your homework! The homework she assigns are easy, but obviously if you don't do it she'll get really mad! The only thing I don't like about her is sometimes when we participate she doesn't see my hand or doesn't pick it! If this affects my participation mark then I will get angry because I ALWAYS raise my hand...
Ms. Zallen is the best teacher ever! Her tests and quizzes are very easy, and her class was so much fun! I would recommend participating a lot and trying to sound French.
Nice teacher, but a very hard marker. Her tests to me seem pretty easy. She is also helpful and can teach french very well.
She's a nice teacher, but my hate for french has grown ever since I've been in her class. In class, there are no natural breaks (there's pretty much no good time to go to the lu) and it's worksheet after worksheet until you start to feel drowsy.
Honestly , I wasn't even one of the smart kids, but her class was super fun. Might be difficult at times, but overall, she's a great teacher!
had her last year (: one of my favorite teachers! she's really nice and helpful.
knows her subject and about teaching, but is really self-righteous, impatient, and can't comprehend the fact that she makes mistakes sometimes
Very hard teacher...barely anyone can get perfect on any assignment...or maybe its because of french honours? Anyways, she marks easily on artistic things compared to the writing parts.
really nice but you have to be hard working.. well for everyone who says she is "biased" why don't you try being nicer and working harder you don't have to be a teacher's pet to be her favourite...
I like her she's really nice but we have to be really hard working in her class to actually please her
I think everyone who talks bad about Zallen is just a lazy idoit. yes, she is hard, but because of this, she challenges you and makes you a better student. I think she is a great french teacher!!!!!
she's just the nicest! and she makes herself so clear in class. ☺
i love zallen, made french easy because she still uses english in class, but i think thats cuz im one of her " favourites"
Okay teacher. Favours her favourites WAYYY too much. Gives students chances to make up their mark, though.
FAVOURS WAAAY too much..too obvious that she favours and...ur first impression affects your mark.
a very down to earth kinda teacher. loved having her in grade 8 and know can't wait till grade 9 hounors
Hard teacher, but nice. But in the end, she still doesn't help in making French more enjoyable. French is still the class i hate the most.
best teacher ever! teaches french so well! ms zallen can i please be in your class next year????????????
the best =) made me like french more and explains things very well.. but her marking? i should hav gotten an A.. 28/30 on the final.. and she gave me 25/30 =(
She was pretty fair,its just i dont like french so i wasnt a favorite>.<
Best French teacher! Great overall teacher. 16 years later, I still remember my vocab!
i don't get how she marks. some one hu's got 93% on all orals n tests can get the same term percentage as someone hu's got 85% on all orals n tests
.Zallen is the best french teacher is there ever was. She makes hard material easy to understand. She's THE COOLEST!
If you are one of those naughty ppl that talk too much. Than yes she get angry and yells, but that's waht makes a good teacher. She makes French fun and easy.
AHHH french hurts my brain!!!!! but at least your helpful ^_^
You think she gives out too much hw? Wait till you get Ms. Greer.
I HATE FRENCH.. but she did help me a lot, still hate it... bye
Cool teacher! so good in teaching. She's very helpful and she's clear about things
very nice, but not easy. She kinda made me like french more.
