Believe it or not – the mid-term exam is just around the corner. You will be getting the study guide below printed out on mardi le 6 déc (B Day) & mercredi le 7 déc (A Day). I will be explaining this guide in full detail on jeudi le 8 déc (B Day) and vendredi le 9 déc (A Day). Please take a good look over the study guide when you receive it on Tuesday or Wednesday and take note of anything that you need to ask me about on Thursday or Friday in class.

I have made some study sets on Quizlet using the same questions that are on the mid-term exam. Practice these sets & you will be super prepared. You can find them at this link: French JOHS Mme Worsham or you can search Quizlet for frenchjohsmmeworsham. I have set up all of my classes there, so please join your class. I will be making more Quizlet study sets throughout the year, and you can make some too!
