Thierry Ponchet is an okay teacher. However, he insists on making us listen to French songs and memorizing facts about the artists! He rarely uses the textbook as well. He is very disorganized. We would have a test every Friday but he would usually come in and spend 20 minutes writing about the test. Not only that but he's late quite often. One time, he was late to class by 40 minutes.
Thierry Ponchet refuses to use a text book and instead insists on using songs and poems to teach the students about French. He is consistently late for class and never bases his tests on the material consistent with the curriculum. He gets the class to watch movies with inappropriate subject matter. He once told the class he would assign a project either about Down Syndrome or Mongolia. I found the similarities he drew between the two to be hurtful and disrespectful. A very reckless teacher.
thinks he is teaching French in france. doesn't explain anything, has completely unreasonable expectations, shows inappropriate content in class, for example making fun of down syndrome and comparing it to Mongolians, and most of the tests are based on the content of movies and songs.
Great teacher! Super nice and helpful with a sleepy personality. You watch a lot of movies though... he can be pretty disorganized, but he cares about his students and is great one-on-one. One of my favourite teachers.
Overall alright, a little disorganized. Didn't suit my 'style' of learning.
yeah he's about the best french teacher anywhere... such a nice guy
Study on your own for the fral 12 provincial... i wouldn't be surprised if he'd never even looked at one.
nice guy, learned a lot, but not stuff that was on the provincial!
Most random class ever. He'd be good if there wasn't a provincial that he didn't write, waiting for everyone at the end of the class. Very very little prep.
Really nice guy, easy class. He should have been an art teacher instead of French though, since you do a lot of that. Study well for the provincial on your own.
Learned more in french 11 than in all my previous years of french combined. Sooo nice and a great teacher!!! Teaches french culture, not just language.
Ponchet was one of my favourite teachers... French 12 was the best course! A great guy, very approachable, and listens to the best French music!
Great teacher. Willing to help, and is concerned about students' performances. Accomodating. Interesting field trips.
THE nicest guy in the world! Mr. Ponchet's class is wonderful.
theirry is a funny guy. he was an alright teacher too. he justs gives busywork
really easy! i actually enjoyed french class for once!
total text book teacher, and you can do anything for bonus marks, good guy
