Please see student reflections below :

"When Madame Sinclair mentioned that we were going to participate in the Berth Mouchette competition, my first reaction was , "no we already have too much to do" . However, when I thought about it in the long run, I realised that it would be beneficial for me to participate. And here I am today, making it to the finals, such unexpected news. I believe it has helped me gain more confidence in my french".  Juliette Marquat

"I was extremely grateful to have had the chance to take part in the Berthe Mouchette competition this year. It was a beneficial and valuable experience, especially in getting to know the new French study design. The outcome was completely unexpected, however has given me more motivation in preparing for our upcoming exams!" Meredith Lim

"The Berthe Mouchette competition was a truly enriching experience. Although it was another assessment to juggle, it was certainly valuable as it exposed us to the new exam format and gave us the opportunity to hone our conversational skills."  Francesca Zappia
