Final Exam for French 121, Dec 6th &  7th, at your normal class time.

Please note: You will be given 25 minutes of class time THURSDAY, Dec. 6th, to do the oral part of the exam.  For those students who miss this opportunity, you will not be given a make up chance to do this section, instead you will have to complete the entire test in the time allotted on Friday (without the oral section).

Please note: The Chpt 4 cahier will be due Friday.  Please put it on the table as soon as you come in  with it already stapled.  I’d advise you to not use  your test time to organize your papers, so have them ready in advance (for your sake).  Any review papers and worksheets from this week are to be turned in at that time as well!
