French at The Hewett School

Course description

Are you interested in social issues, current affairs, the environment, the world of business and industry, the EU, charities, politics, the arts, traditions …?

Are you interested in other people and their cultures? Do you want to be able to discuss subjects of interest to you, and be able to develop and give your opinions on them? Do you like to be allowed to choose how you research your subject? Do you enjoy speaking and listening, and reading and writing? Do you want to extend and increase your knowledge of the grammar and vocabulary of both French and English? Do you want to be able to double the amount of people you can communicate with?

If you do, think about studying French in the sixth form. You will learn to be an effective communicator, speak and write the language in a range of different situations, use French to express facts and ideas and use the language to present explanations, opinions and information.

At A2 you will also learn how to develop an argument and to analyse and evaluate, in speech and in writing. You will have opportunities to develop your understanding and awareness of spiritual, moral, ethical, environmental, health and European issues.

Many of the topic areas will be familiar to you from your GCSE French, so you will be able to make a confident start to your AS French course. The difference is that we are able to explore these areas in much greater depth, often depending on the group’s particular interests. You will look at Media (television, advertising and communication technology), Popular Culture (cinema, music and fashion trends), Healthy Living (sport, exercise, health, well-being and holidays) and Family and Relationships (relationships within the family, friendships, marriage and partnerships).
