Congratulations to five SAYRE juniors on passing the DELF test.
On February 7th, Mme Linda Chambers, Middle and High School French teacher at Sayre School, accompanied Genevieve Borrodale-Cox, Mia Chalhoub, Abby Clayton, Colleen Craven to the Alliance Française in Atlanta to take the official French government language proficiency test DELF. Ben Tucker, had already traveled to Atlanta in December to take the test.
The DELF test is used in place of entrance exams at French universities and is considered standardized "proof" of your level of French language ability in France, in the European Union and in many countries of the world—somewhat equivalent to the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), though broader in format and content. As such, it broadens any student’s resume for international professional or academic opportunities in any French speaking country. The Sayre students took the DELF B1 exam, which identifies language learners as independent users, capable of maintaining interactions, understanding and maintaining discussions, giving opinions and capable of dealing with situations likely to arise in daily life.
The entire Sayre contingent was recognized as the first group of High School students to ever take the DELF test in the South Eastern Region.
