Dictée PGL and Kangourou Contest, Middle School 2012

Every year, our French immersion students in INTL's* middle school take the "Dictée PGL", a French-style spelling/dictation test, and the math-based "Kangourou Contest." Please join us in congratulating our award winners below.

Dictée PGL:

La Dictée PGL was created as a way to encourage children to improve their French writing skills. Placing or winning at dictée is a tremendous accomplishment, as French language can be challenging to write. There are numerous grammar, sentence structure and spelling rules to remember and follow and the dictée rigorously tests students’ writing mechanics skills.
