French A Level at Waddesdon CofE School
The course will help you to develop your general study skills, but most of all you will learn to communicate at a higher level in the language that you have chosen. You will be able to read, understand and extract information from written passages in the target language that are taken from authentic sources, such as magazines and newspapers, reports or books.
You will be able to listen to, and understand contemporary spoken language and answer questions on what you have heard. The passages that you will learn to listen to will be taken from a range of sources such as news reports on the radio or TV, weather forecasts, announcements, interviews and discussions.
You will learn how to write essays or longer pieces and to hold conversations and discussions in the target language.
There will be a range of opportunities open to you, where you can continue to use and further develop your language skills and knowledge of contemporary society. Some students choose to do degree courses in languages; others choose to pursue a Higher Education course in another subject, but choose a language option alongside it. Having a language at AS or A-Level will certainly improve your employability, in particular with companies which have international branches.
