Houston High student grabs the top spot for the state in the National French Test (The Lauréat Concours National de Français)

This year 80,000 students took the National French Test (The Lauréat Concours National de Français). The test involved a section of listening comprehension and another of reading comprehension. Houston High School student William Wolf placed first in the state of Tennessee and ninth overall nationally (the scores are given out in tiers, with students awarded placements based off their overall scores of both sections). Winning the contest for the State earned him a French medal which was worn at graduation.



Earlier this year, Wolf placed first in the French vocabulary test at the University of Memphis foreign language fair. On all of the contest wins, Wolf told us, “I am so grateful to have such an amazing French teacher, Madame Séverine McClellan”.
