NOTE 1--Significant Accounting Policies:
Dreyfus International Growth Fund (the "fund") is a separate non-diversified series of Dreyfus International
Funds, Inc. (the "Company") which is registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the
"Act"), as an open-end management investment company and operates as a series company currently offering
two series including the fund. The fund's investment objective is to provide investors with capital growth. The
Dreyfus Corporation (the "Manager") serves as the fund's investment adviser. The Manager is a direct subsidiary
of Mellon Bank, N.A., which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mellon Financial Corporation. Dreyfus Service
Corporation (the "Distributor"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Manager, is the Distributor of the funds shares,
which are sold to the public without a sales charge.
The Company accounts separately for the assets, liabilities and operations of each series. Expenses directly
attributable to each fund are charged to that series' operation; expenses which are applicable to all funds are
allocated among them on a pro rata basis.
The fund' s financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the
United States, which may require the use of management estimates and assumptions. Actual results could differ
from those estimates.

open short positions, where the asked price is used for valuation purposes. Bid price is used when no asked
price is available. Securities for which there are no such valuations are valued at
