STUDENT TESTIMONIAL ï¿½ Annie, student of French in 2008
ï¿½Working with Madame Darrou gave me not only a sound understanding in the written, oral and aural exam components but also tips and tricks to give me an extra edge when it came to standing out and getting the highest mark possible. Coming into French two years later than other VCE students Madame Darrou helped me gain the confidence I needed with her fun, interactive classes and passion for the subject. Future VCE students would definitely benefit from this - French quickly became not only my favourite subject but also my best!ï¿½
Annie went on to study French at the University of Melbourne.
Jane has worked as a tutor for VCE French students over the past twenty years.
