It's been just over 30 years since I first sat in class with Lou Barrowman - he was a new teacher back then - for French and Japanese. He shared the culture and history as well as the language which I think really helped to foster my love of languages to this day. Hope he is still at TGS in 2 years to teach my kids too!

He's ok but half the time I can't hear what he's saying and I wish he'd go slower in class. I can't understand much but he seems to think I know more than I do. Nice guy, he's really funny if you list

The best teacher I ever had! It was in his class that I developed a love of language. My German and Japanese skills have served me well over the years.

25 Years later German people are still complimenting me on the accent I acquired in this man's class. He made me love all languages, not just the ones he taught me.

Mr. Barrowman was the best teacher I ever had. He is so talented and has a wonderful manner. After all these years, I still think of him as a huge inspiration. :0)

I had him in third through fifth for for German (yep, that was a few years ago) and he was a great teacher. I'm now at uni in New York and am taking German, thanks to him!

He was my Spanish teacher in Year 11. He's a cool teacher but my class was boring. I think for the 1st time in my Taka years, he actually wanted my class to be more livelier and noisier.

Very nice- but the class is a bit too quiet and boring with him. Tries to show his sense of humour though. Very knowledgeable.
