• You will be starting the first year of a two year sequence in the French language program. French 7 (or French 1A) will prepare you for a more intensive study of French 1B during 8th grade. Successful completion at the end of 8th grade French will fulfill one credit of your graduation requirements! Keep studying French for an additional two years successfully and it will help you earn your Regents Diploma with Distinction which will help you to be accepted at colleges and universities.

    Your child will be taught and assessed on four language skills: Speaking, Listening, Reading, and Writing. Here are some tips to help your child be successful at learning French:


    1.    Encourage your child to make study aides that you know have helped him/her in the past.

    2.    Encourage your child to review vocabulary for ten minutes every night.

    3.    Encourage your child to visit me during lunch if help is needed.

    4.    Contact me if you have any questions.
