ILS 8th grader Olga Filimonova (section 8M3) achieved a score of 98.5 out of 100 on the DELF French language exam, after studying the language for only one year.
“This is a brilliant result, especially as Olga began learning the language in 2018,” says ILS French Language teacher Elena Poddubnyak. “She has also participated in two French Embassy competitions: ‘What does Francophone mean to me’ and ‘French language monologue game’, during Francophone Days in Vladivostok, organized by Alliance-Française Vladivostok.”
DELF and DALF are official diplomas awarded by the French Ministry of Education and are recognized throughout the world as indicating a person’s level of mastery of the French language.
“This year was the first time I took an official French language exam, and my result of 98.5 out of 100 was very satisfying,” says Olga. “I am proud of what I accomplished, and I wish to thank my teacher, Elena Poddubnyak, for helping me to prepare so well that I was not very nervous during the exam. I am planning to take the next level exam in May and am hoping for a good result.”
“We congratulate Olga on her excellent result,” notes ILS Principal Olga Shevchenko. “ILS is a partner school of the French Embassy in Russia, which allows our students to take part in various competitions organized by the embassy.
