FRENCH at Langley Grammar School
The course aims to develop students’ fluency in the four skill areas of listening, reading, speaking and writing. The four topic areas at AS level are:
Youth culture and concerns
Lifestyle: health and fitness
The world around us: travel, tourism and environmental issues
Education and Employment.
For A2 there are 3 further topic areas:
Customs, traditions, beliefs and religions
National and international events: past, present and future
Literature and the arts
Within these broad topic areas there is considerable flexibility to discuss a range of issues, depending on students’ own interests, or current events in French speaking countries. Students will spend half an hour a week with the language assistant to develop their oral fluency and confidence, and there is the opportunity to do a week’s work experience in France.
Students will need to have gained a B or above at GCSE. Those with a lower grade tend to find the course extremely demanding.
