French at Calder High School
Travel - so the saying goes –broadens the mind. And never more so than when you can speak the language. That way you’ll be able to find out what the local people are thinking, how they live... and how their culture really works. This course has been designed to give you a profound understanding of your chosen language. Not only will you know more about the mechanics of the language – like grammar and vocabulary –but also about how people live and use language on a day-to-day basis.
