  11. De quelle couleur...?
  12. [un nombre aléatoire 30-50] plus [un autre nombre aléatoire 30-50] font ____. (To be clear: CAH will pick two random numbers from 30 to 50 and ask you to add them; e.g.: CAH may say "46 plus 30 font ___," and you will need to respond with a complete sentence: "Quarante-six plus trente font soixante-seize.")
  13. [un nombre aléatoire 5-15] fois [un autre nombre aléatoire 5-15] font ____.

  14. Qu'est-ce que tu vas manger pour [le petit déjeuner/le déjeuner/le dîner] [aujourd'hui/demain]?
  15. Qu'est-ce que tu me conseilles de faire au Collines Noires?
  16. Où est-ce que tu me conseilles de manger au Collines Noires? Pourquoi?
In Part 2, you must Pose au prof cinq questions en français (et montre, que tu comprends ses réponses: traduis immediatement en anglais)!
  • CAH will not count simple questions like "Ça va?" "Comment vous appelez-vous?" or "Quel âge avez-vous?"
  • You may not ask any of the questions posed to you by CAH in Part 1.
  • Do not rehearse questions translated from English to French on Google Translate. Compose questions of interest to you from the vocabulary we have studied.
CAH will administer the Oral Final Exam in ten-minute one-on-one interviews with each student May 14–May 18 and May 21–22. Oral Final Exams will take place before school, during lunch, during Spartan Time, after school, and during other times when CAH is available. Students are responsible for signing up for their own exam appointment times on the master schedule in CAH's classroom and for remembering to show up at their chosen times.
