I'm failing, but I think she is a great teacher. she will always give you a chance to succeed. But she's harsh passive-aggressive.

She certainly knows what she's doing, but she moves through units very quickly. She speaks very quickly and quietly. Sits you in the dreaded alphabetical order. Beware of her challenge classes.

On my 2nd degree at UBC. Til this day she's the BEST French teacher I've ever had. I learned more French in her classes than all my other French education combined.

Even after completing highschool and obtaining a university degree, she is still the worst teacher I have ever had. Beware the unemotional wrath of McDowell.

She teaches you everything you need to know, and she really cares. If you're in Fr Immersion though, she will not give you equal opportunity because she knows that you know it.

She expects a little too much, and she thinks she's the best French teacher ever. Not that I'm saying she's not a good teacher, but she's a little too much.

I liked Frech before I got Mme. Mcdowell and realized I knew nothing. And you know how you get when you feel like you know nothing.

I get frusterated sometimes with her because I feel like I don't understand and she expects a LOT from us but I guess she's supposed to because we're challenge.
