These comments are terrible! Bernecich taught me for years and was fantastic. She is so passionate about Italian and really enforces the fact that to learn another language requires work outside of just a a few hours week, and constant reinforcement. I already spoke another language which is why I really appreciated her giving us a pretty fair workload as I understood more so than other students that the more material you worked with, the better your language skills would be.
so rude, she picks her favourites and least favourites, and purposely picks on the kids who she doesn't like. goes too fast in class and doesn't explain things twice even if the class needs more help. she knows her stuff but she is one of the worst teachers I've ever had. she will definitely turn you off that subject.
omg cannot believe the comments! Berni is fabulous, would highly recommend. my italian has improved greatly with her and her teaching style is great.
