You taught me German in year 8 and 9. (99/00). Inspirational teacher- so many exciting life experiences to share which made your language lessons so interesting and taught me that learning a language is useless unless the context is also taken into consideration. You taught me to think outside the box and gave me an insight into education that I would never had valued without your determination and time. And thanks for introducing me to Berlin! Ich hab' noch einen Koffer in Berlin! ;)

I always thought he was alright, had a few interesting discussions with him. I'll always laugh at the time he thought a guy wiping his nose in german was doing a hitler impression though!

loves the sound of his own voice which rarely offers anything vaguely useful. Stupidly short temper despite being one of the least intimidating men around. Immersed in delusional self importance

He is alright if he likes you, but it seems he just has to scream at someone for about half an hour, every single lesson, eg. had a go at someone for BREATHING
