Mr Shields is okay. He is VERY strict and quite mean, though he seems to know his stuff. I had him for French in yr 8 and he talked almost completely in french the whole time and expected us to understand him. It was very hard to learn that way before we even knew the basics. He never really explained anything he was teaching us so I don't really like his teaching methods. Otherwise, he is alright.
He had been my French teacher when I was in year 8 and didn't explain what he was teaching very much which made it very difficult for me considering year 8 was my first year learning French
We're only beginners! He knows his French, but goes through things fast, and speaks, most of the time, in fluid French. His style of teaching has put some French words into my head though.
ermm........ i hate french classes. he expects us to know everything!! it's sooo hardd! and he SAYS EVERYTHING IN FRENCH..... WE ARE BEGINNERS!! we have no idea what you are saying!
He expects way too much of us. We're not all incredibly great linguists.
