French at Stantonbury Campus

Course description

The A Level French course develops the four skill areas which stem from GCSE; listening and responding, reading and responding, speaking and writing. The course is based around contemporary topics such as the environment, the role of the family, young people in society, tourism and health. You will use magazines, newspapers and the Internet, as well as traditional materials like course books. In the first year students will develop their vocabulary and grammatical knowledge and be able to express themselves more fully, taking control of the language. The A Level course is subdivided into two parts: AS and A2. For both levels there is a mixed skills written examination and a speaking test. The examination ‐ AS Speaking Test ‐ 15 minutes and Listening, Reading & Writing ‐ 2hrs 30 minutes. We actively encourage students to continue into Year 13 where the range of topics covered will be expanded and willinclude among others, political issues, racism and immigration. At the end of Year 13 students will take the second part of the exam: The examination ‐ A2 Reading and Speaking Test ‐ 20 minutes and Listening, Reading & Writing ‐ 2hrs 45minutes (this exam involves an essay writing task). You will have the opportunity to work with other students in Milton Keynes as part of a series of Aim Higher master classes.
