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.

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.
