SHE IS my least favourite teacher out of all of them. She yells at the class constantly and never gives us a break. She gives way too much homework and very clearly has her favourites. In mt opinion, she is never clear about homework etc.

Mme Yaraghi is my least favourite teacher, she turns everyone off of being in French immersion. She gives an insane amount of homework, every single day after school and weekends I'm stuck in my room doing French homework. She makes fun of everybody if they make a mistake. It's hard to ask her questions because she'll think that you are dumb if you don't know the answer. You have to be so alert in her class because you'll never know when she is going to yell at you. No one in my grade likes her.

Mme. Yaraghi was my grade 8 and 10 french teacher and she did a really good job. she was pretty clear on everything. Only thing I disliked about the class was all the work I spent 95% of my free time I spent doing homework, she says she pushes hard so we can achieve great things but I think she worked us a little too hard. Having to spend my entire weekend doing homework was not fun.........

M Yaraghi's exams are unfair. She yells at the class for not understanding french language verbs, language, nouns, semantics, etc that are not in the curriculum. We received a test that included material that she never taught us in our curriculum! Is that fair?

I would not recommend taking the french immersion program at Handsworth. If you want to learn about french and love the language don't come to Handsworth. I honestly hate french and fail to see the point in taking it because it honestly just bring your GPA down while being a non-academic course.

A wonderful teacher with a great sense of humor! She really only wants what's best for her students and if you work hard, it'll show. My French has seriously improved after following her advice.

Most of these reviews are from grade 8's. You don't realize that once you get into grade 11 and 12 she will become your favourite teacher. She is extremely strict towards grade 8's but it pays off. After two years of the OTHER french teacher and coming back to Yaraghis jokes you will understand. Wait it out and disregard the other reviews if you are in grade 8 because she was my least favourite teacher then and my favourite now so.

It's not an easy class, you have to work. Slackers be warned. She is a bit opinionated but she gives you a different perspective on life. Gr 8 was scary as hell but gr 12 was lots of fun so long as you work hard and being smart helps a ton.

as long as shes not talking about Iran (really skewed world picture there) and you keep on her good side, you can work your way into getting and keeping a good mark. BUT get on the wrong side and you are doomed...

She definitely asks a lot out of her students, and might seem very demanding. But once you get to know her better, she's actually pretty cool. My French improved dramatically.
