“There's nothing a teacher treasures more than to see their pupil succeed.”

You can type French accents using ALT codes, which use the ALT key and a 3 or 4 digit code. However, ALT codes only work with the numeric keypad, NOT the row of numbers across the top of your keyboard.

To type accents with ALT codes, hold down the ALT key, then on the numeric keypad type the three or four digits listed here, one at a time. When you release the ALT key, the character will appear.
