French at The Sir John Colfox School

Course description

The course aims to enable students to use the spoken language fluently and correctly, to develop a high level of comprehension and a high level of written accuracy, together with acquisition of knowledge about the contemporary culture and society of France and other French speaking countries or communities.

The units of study are graded in complexity of theme and language, starting at the beginning of the course with topics that will be familiar to students from GCSE, and leading to more complex topics such as the third world, energy sources and pollution. At A2 students will also choose to study a cultural topic which will vary depending on their own interests.

One of the main differences with GCSE work is that at GCSE the language applied is mainly descriptive and narrative, whereas in the 6th form, students learn to give and justify their opinions, to debate and argue causes and concerns.

Entry requirements
