An overall friendly and helpful teacher. You can tell she's one of those precious rare teachers who wants to see her students do well, however she isn't mean and strict! She is always trying to get us engaged, and getting us to speak French and French only in her class. This is good because over time it helps develop our skills! She uses interactive activities to make the class more fun and isn't rigid and stuck in authoritarianism like many other teachers.

Uses an "immersion" style of teaching, at least for Grade 10. I had her for both French and Italian in Grade 10 and she tried to avoid using English as often as possible (less so in Italian since it was an introductory course). It seems harsh to people who aren't so familiar with the languages, but it is a very effective way of learning the language. Assignments aren't too difficult, but she can be a hard marker at times.

Best french teacher I've ever had. She explains everything, and always makes sure we understand the material. She is really nice too.

She marks as if we will go to French University. She singles out the students that try and don't succeed and let the other students rot.

Knows her stuff, but very unclear and confusing. She'll say one thing one day and change her mind the next, often forgetting to tell the class. Willing to give extra help if necessary

Needs to make up her mind. First says that she won't mark our drawings for an assignment (storyboard) then includes it as part of the mark. Don't tell us it won't be part of the mark when it is.

Defintely knows the languages she teaches, but needs to ease up a little on marking things for creativity. Creativity is subjective! Especially when it's a simple phrase that you can't do much with.

This is a good french teacher. Not the posers who know a bit and learn all the lessons the night before class. So nice, friendly and great to talk.

Mme. Mandatori is a great teacher. Very nice, smart and interesting. She really knows the langauge French, instead of just knowing a the lessons for each day.
