Does not prepare you for tests at all. At one stage we had tests every single lesson which were often on things that we had not learnt yet. Most of the tests were quizzes to check our own progress which were helpful. However, we were never warned when a "real test" (one the contributes to your overall grade) was coming up. This caused many to fail and to drop Japanese the following year
Classes were stressful and there is not enough time to learn anything. We don't get any preparation for tests that effect our grade, and we're constantly being pressured to speak in front of the class when we haven't even learnt the required Japanese. Most student hate the class because of this....
Quite strict, but taught us useful information that I have used all through my senior high school. Had him for Japanese. He drilled our lessons into us thoroughly.
My god, this teacher is one of the best I've ever had. A great teacher that I recommend for everyone, I only had him for Japanese but it was the best Japanese class ever. He is quite a bit touchy in class, and other students don't like it, but I love it when he gets touchy with me, I wish he'd take it to 2nd base already :)
Highly strict teacher and very demanding. He also isn't very knowledgeable on the Japanese language though he's an expert on the culture
Doctor Leslie Mullins is, outwardly, a very strict teacher with very debatable views on how a classroom should be coreographed. Doctor Mullins is a very unprepared teacher for his classes, lacks the ability to communicate well with his students, leaves his students very unprepared for tests, has unrealistically high standards and leaves a pretty bad mark on the student's experience with languages as a whole. Even though he's hired to do just that, he still leaves a bad impression on students.
he doesn't explain things clearly, doesn't tell his students about tests, he also goes off topic a lot of the time
Not recommended, lack of clarity and half the time he gets carried away talking about something irrelevant about the subject. Once, we watched a documentary that used up 45 mins and we only got through 3.5 min of the video.
Despite what most people say, Dr Mullins is actually quite a good teacher. Sure, he isn't the best at Japanese, and sure he's pretty serious, but once you get to know him, you're good. Getting on his good side might be difficult, but once you are, he'll make sure you do your best. Even when someone is attention-seeking in class, he'll start a small talk with a couple of students around him about how they won't be doing that well in Japanese and how they're not trying their absolute hardest.
He thinks that Japanese is the only subject you do. He's always complaining that we don't do our homework because apparently we don't get homework from any other teachers which certainly isn't true. All he cares about is Japanese and honestly he can't even speak it that well
Rushes to conclusions too fast and doesn't listen to the students side of the situation
I have him for jap now he doesn't understand anyone he's not good with students
Good at the subject, bad with students.
Big Lez maaaate, absolute slayer, gives the best advice on the fit birds, good on ya lez
Very easy to get in the sack if you're coming from a student perspective. Up for it anytime ;) . Always crystal clear of his intentions when he asks you outside. The man knows what he wants... Has never hit anyone over the head with a textbook. MayB
Top bloke hahahahahahahaha hahaahhahahahahahahahaha no honestly
I've only ever had Mullins for Japanese and whilst he isn't very knowledgeable at it (he's only learnt it up to a year 10 level,) he sure is enthusiastic about it. From what I've heard he's a very good geography teacher though. I know Mullins isnt an easy going character and he's a bit of a tyrant in class, but if you're nice to him he's nice to you and is willing to help you out in a tight spot. A very misunderstood person.
me think that he is a dedicated teacher who has a phd and still teaches students GO SENSEI
