Torresan is probably the best french teacher in Robs. She spent a part of her life in France so she knows the culture and language well. I love how she fits in fun facts from France like how true champagne can only be produced in Champagne. She is a hard marker on tests, but you should do well if you study. For orals, challenge yourself with longer scripts. Torresan is really nice if you respect her and are well-mannered. Try in her class and you'll learn a lot.

Mrs. Torresan is one of my favourite teachers at this school. I'm not the best at French. In fact, I was horrible when I started her class. However, she challenged me to consistently be improving my oral and written skills through her hard marking. I came out of her class a different french speaker, and loving the language.
Always makes class enjoyable and fun with side stories that will probably teach a lesson anyways. Be thankful you have her, quality french teacher.

Always compared our class to her IB class. Basically said we were retards and we should all just drop out of french and she doubted that anyone will take french next year (she did a class survey and 3 people were gonna continue but the rest hated french and hated it way more with her as teacher) does have a nice side if you have a good understanding of french, but if you have no knowledge of french, then you're done for lol good luck rip

Such a good teacher! She is very knowledgeable, and will go out of her to help you succeed. After being in her class, I've learned to actually enjoy the French language. Not going to lie, she marks quite hard on her writing assignments, but she will go out of her way to make you improve. Overall, amazing teacher!

Loved her! She taught us so much and is so passionate about the work she does. She doesn't follow the textbook however what she teaches is much better. She gave us candy and Frenchie foods too..integrated the French culture into the curriculum very well .. AMAZINGLY...FANTASTICALLY......
She's the head of the french department for a reason. HEAD OF MY LIFE. PREACH.

Most of the time she is pretty funny and nice. But she can be really strict when it comes to tests; She's not the easiest marker. People say she plays favourites so be on her nice side just in case!
She always gives great additional tips/notes during her lesson that will help you with your languages.

Great teacher! Marks fairly and is approachable. Her lessons are informative and you learn so much in each class. French was always fun and our class had many inside jokes! Be thankful if you have her.

Make sure you ask her lots of questions! Everytime she goes off on a tangent for a couple of minutes, (which she often did daily in my class), she will teach a lot of cultural context and linguistic technicalities. If you pay attention, YOU WILL LEARN A LOT!
