best teacher ever
I'm probably sooo biased but Matanovic was such an amazing teacher. Even though I had previous French experience, she taught me so much more. The reality is that if you want to be prepared for French in later years you really need to try hard in her class because she will bless you with so much knowledge for the future. If you don't care about getting a good mark in French then maybe her class isn't for you, but if you put in the effort to do well then you will. :)
She's not as bad as everyone makes her seem. She's actually passionate bout the subject, but I do agree that her teaching style may be a bit harsh on most students.
Mme Matanovic is a great teacher but her personality is harsher than most. Though my French has drastically improved since the beginning of the semester, I found her to be rude to who she does not like. Though she was not rude to me, seeing her treat others like she did wasn't the best. However that being said, she was really resourceful and knowledgeable and gave relevant homework (though you may not feel like it is). She prepared the class well for exams and really appreciate that!
not a great teacher at all
The only people who like her in my experience are the ones who are already really good at french. She definitely plays favourites and likes kids who are good at french waay more. Im not the best at French but I tried really hard and whenever I would ask her for help I just felt humiliated because she acts like you are stupid. She just wouldn't teach things properly and expects you to learn on your own. I wanted to like her because she seems really nice but beware if you aren't good at French.
I can sum it up in one word -- Dislike
Not the greatest teacher I've had... in fact, she is close to the being the worst. Her teaching methods are extremely lax- she doesn't teach and expects us to learn everything online, which is just indicative of extreme laziness. She always talks in French (which is a good thing, actually), but doesn't repeat things if we don't understand them (this happens quite a lot). However, if you have the initiative to ask questions, she actually will help you, which is good.
She always speaks in French like we are all from Quebec!!! She does not understand that she needs to actually teach us before she throws tons of worksheets at us! Her tests are very hard because she does not teach. I have never seen her writing on the board and explaining anything. She gave us a worksheet on the first day of school and expected to go online to do the worksheet. This is not teaching, this is giving out worksheets and blabbering in French. I want to report her. :(
Worst...teacher....EVER. She expects you to know without teaching it, and then she'll test u on it. TOTAL B!
I used to like French before Matanovic unfortunately leaped into my world...#based
A nice teacher who loves her subject. But her teaching style isn't the greatest; sometimes she gives you a sheet on something without explaining it, and then the next day there's be a quiz on it...
AMAZING teacher. Everyone hates on her just because her teaching methods are different. I think that she is an awesome teacher for people who actually WANT to learn.
of course all the assignments are ridiculous, it's FRENCH, and in french you don't learn facts or anything on the subject, you learn the language, and you do that by ridiculous assignments that get you to talk and write like an eight year old.
What i see here is either her extreme fans or some very extreme whiners that don't like french. Need more explanation, get help or, duh, ask a question. Work hard and she helps you get where you want to be.
a really interesting person..sit at the front and listen to her when she talks..shes not always the best teacher but shes not bad..do your work, listen to her, sit at the front and you'll do well
matanovic cannot teach at all. she needs to learn to explain better, especially with french, when she gives homework she says it in french so you dont even understand:S, she also expects you to know everything already instead of teach it
she picks on some ppl..and likes some others! what im tryin 2 say is that her attitude depends on u..shes sometimes nice..sometimes the meanest!
good if u alredy no french, she spent an entire period telling us how to skip talks bout wen she was young shes so cool! she could prolly learn to xplain better
sum of her stuff is easy but she doesn't know how to explain stuff, she expects us to learn it off the internet :S and she's always talking about her french hub
Pretty cool teacher -- it all depends on what level you're at...too revealing though, there's just some things teachers should keep to themselves.
She's the greatest teacher/person ever! Whether it's French or English or anything else, she's the best! Thanks for everything!
Best teacher I have ever met and an even better person.....no surprise that I'm going to become a French teacher!
was the reason i was screwed in english thi syear cost my my average! Don;t teach english ever again!
Mme Matanovic is an amazing teacher...so wiked, so nice so good at what she does! Been in her class twice in a row...hope to again next year!!
giving people attitude doesnt help them learn and stereotypes arent always tru
must have learned her lesson after Fraser, otherwise she wouldn't be here!
Don't you teach french. Reall good teacher and helpr.
explains everything in French- am i supposed to get it?
