I was in his French 103 Class. Coming from a French high school and not having more than 85 in Sec 5 French is quite a struggle to be in his class. His essay evaluations are pretty tough, but the grammar exam was extremely easy and I would wanted it to be worth more. It's hard to get high above average.

He is incredibly passionate and nice. If you listen in class and participate, it is easy to get good marks. Montreal, Metropole is a really fun class where you don't have outside work except for museum visits. You watch really good movies and read a good book. This class doesn't require a lot of work. Definitely recommend!

Clearly loves his job and the students, very respectful and caring, always wants to help. That being said, his linguistique et traduction class is fair, but make sure your opinion is the same as his, or marks will be deduced rather quickly. Exams are fair too. He corrects very quickly (2-3 days)

Coming from a French high school, I was expecting an easy 103 class but it was much harder than expected especially because he doesn't grade fair at all, picks grades out of a hat. Classes are boring but activities are okay. Tests can be tricky and if you don't share the same opinion, you're screwed.

Picky grader, if you don't have the same opinion as him he will take off points. You will have to spend time & MONEY outside of class to visit museums, theatre, cinema, etc. Picks REALLY ABSTRACT books. The tests have really specific questions and they are hard. The class average was quite low. Nice teacher. Doesn't really answer your questions during office hours. I got a good R score but even some people from french schools did not do too well. Unpredictable teacher.

Great guy, I love his class. He seems to love his job, so his class is actually really cool! If you're taking Montreal, metropole c., expect a lot of work, but do take him if you like art, films and museums :)

He is a little crazy and is always running around the room during his lectures. Strict on attendance, even though he is always late, and hates cellphones. VERY FAIR marker. His tests cover the material studied in class, so if you understand the class notes you'll do well on the tests.

He's a good teacher. Wants you to understand the material. Marks are not the priority for him - your understanding of the material is. Classes are not hard in general, but you do have to prepare for them (gives homework almost every class). Encourages participation and is usually patient. Don't get on his bad side and you should be fine.

He's a really nice guy but he doesn't care how well or how bad his students do... as long as you do your work and understand everything you'll do great. If you're good in French level 2 should be a breeze.

He doesn't give that much homework, he doesn't really pick on people in class even if they are weaker, when doing examples in class he really tried to make sure everyone understands. But classes can get a little bit boring.
