She knew her stuff, and she cared. That' stow things going for her. But I found it hard to follow her lessons, and often found myself lost. It was a struggle to keep up, and everytime I felt I got a concept, she was three or four steps ahead. She was trying though, and she was very knowledgable, strong French accent as well.
She's the best teacher I have ever had , her accent was really good , she encouraged us to speack French during class and she also talked in French , helping us improve our listening skills . She focused on improving our speaking, listening , and writing skills. She taught us in a way that we learned and didn't forget what we learned after finishing the course . She knew so much , so many languages and she was very experienced .
mme ribaud was the best french teacher i have ever had! she will be greatly missed at thornlea....
Loved her! Really good teacher, although lessons would always end early and left me bored a lot of the time closer to the end and dragged on
omg you know how many languages she knows and also is fluent at....she knows at least four language not including English...and she can basically travel anywhere except Asia...she is nice, cool, and strict. She encouraged me to stay in grade 9 acadamic instead of going to ESL begining French and i did very well in her class , ending up with 88%
i had her for grade 9 and grade 10 french. She liked me in grade 9 but hated me in grade 10 because i started using tense she has not taught...overall she is fine, she can be nice and helpful
I took Spanish with Ribau five years ago and I can still carry out a conversation today, thanks to her incredible skills as a teacher. She has high expectations - don't let her down!
She is one of the most helpful teachers at T-lea. She constantly provides extra help to students (who approach her). She inspired to attempt some french courses in university!
This class made me able to actually understand and speak fluently (even with limited amounts of words). Thoghu she was scary when I was in grade nine, always in the rock exit making noise. She can be a really nice teacher, and is usually so to the whole class (but she'll probably rat on you alone!). Always detention for not doing hw.... I don't know about the favourites (then I prob was one...)
ribau is a really good teacher if you get on her goodside i was in her french class last year i got certificate of achienvement with an 87 :P
She's weird but very funny the class seems to enjoy her so that's why its fun
Had a tendency to pick favourites, usually people she's had in previous years. Will mark fairly, but is downright eccentric during class. She sometimes treats the class like a bunch of kindergarteners which is frustrating.
i've huurd a lot of bad stuff about her before.. she's failed two of my friends in the past..hope i dont become one of them... she's a nice teacher.. funny.. but i think i got on her bad side.. cuz i chat a lot in class
Very knowledgeable, smart and fun. That little woman is awsome! Very inspirational!
i was on her definate bad side she hated me so much! failed
she was a good n nice teacher if you were on her good side. had a sense of humour...but she was very strict with hw, n gum chewing, n paying attention in class.
keyword being good side... *in reply to message below*
