Upcoming Oral French Language Exams for Grade 9–11 Students

We would like to inform you about an essential upcoming event for your sons enrolled in both Basic and Advanced French courses grades 9 to 11.

From May 23rd to June 7th, our school will be conducting intensive preparation sessions and oral exams for French language proficiency. It is crucial that your sons attend school regularly during this period to adequately prepare for and present their oral exams.

These oral exams not only contribute significantly to their overall French language proficiency assessment but also offer invaluable opportunities for practical language application and skill development.

Your support in ensuring your sons' attendance and readiness for these exams is greatly appreciated. Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter.

Thank you for your cooperation and continued support of your sons' education.
