Worst Japanese teacher I've ever had. She expected us to understand most things she said, even when we'd only just begun learning it, and didn't appear to have any enthusiasm for the class. I can understand why the class size got significantly smaller over the years. I only stayed learning Japanese for the trip to Japan, and my Japanese was a total flop there because she hadn't taught me well enough.

Miss Howat is a brilliant teacher - even though she's been on maternity leave for the last term - and I think she should teach Japanese for as long as possible so that she can help other kids in the way that she's helped me.

Not a bad person, but teaching well... Not too confident. Relies on the book too much. Not bad for higher students who can work independently and just put their heads down otherwise no.

Act like an adult and start treating students like adults. Stop criticising us and give some encouragement! Prepare your lessons and stop apologising. Be consistent! We have exams soon!

She is a very undesirable teacher in Japanese - it would be better if she taught Maths or something, or not at all.
