Congratulations to Thirteen Juniors on Passing the International French Exam DELF
Posted 05/04/2018 10:24AM
This past March, students of Madame Chambers and Dr. Froehlich at traveled to the Alliance Française of Chicago and Atlanta to take a test administered by the French Ministry of Education.
The Diploma in French Language test (DELF) 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 Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), 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. Students took the DELF B1 and B2 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.
Since 2012, 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.
Congratualtions to Isabel Brunker, Isaac Froehlich, John Gunasar, Leena Haider, Mathilde Longbottom, Maya Pemble, Benjamin Waltman, Claire Thayer, Aya Samadi, Hanae Yoshida, Madeleine Bruelheide, Greg Kimmerer, and Wrennie Lambert.
