I had him for two years and he is definitely the best teacher I have ever had. At first he was very strict and intimidating. You did not want to get on his bad side. However, as he got to know us and we got to know him, he became much friendlier towards us. Personally, I'm not very good at languages but I learnt so much from him. He is engaging, very knowledgeable, fair and vastly overqualified to be teaching at our school.
He also gave us haribos on our last lesson.

Just a top chatty geezer really. Does some boxing as well which is cool, and just generally is a bit of a lad, as long as your older than 16.

Anyone who rates him low is clearly under 14 and just hates him because of his strict teaching. In reality the man is a linguistic miracle and even corrects Germans on their grammar. By far the best, most quotable German teacher at WHSB. I will never forget how amazing this man is. Just don't get on his bad side by not making an effort in class.

He's a good teacher, but it's really scary when he gives us our books back after marking them! And if the whole class gets something wrong he makes a fuss, he even gave a lesson on pronouncing zwolf!

He is an extremely good teacher, because he seems to know all the criteria for teaching. He can be patronising, but that makes him a good teacher. He can be funny sometimes aswell!
