Hi Christine, it's Tom ____. I just wanted to let you know that today was my speech day and I won the French prize, which I was very happy about. It made me think that our French lessons some time ago really did help, especially enabling me to get to grips with the difficult tenses/grammar which helped me strive at A-level. All the best, Bisous Tom
