French (Higher and Standard) at The Sixth Form College Colchester

Course description

These courses are for students who have already successfully studied this language at GCSE. The aim is to enable students to be able to communicate effectively in a variety of situations, showing sensitivity to the audience and the culture of the country.

There may be the opportunity to take part in an educational visit to France during the course. The study of a large variety of texts helps develop an awareness of the different perspectives of people from other cultures. Students will be expected to answer questions on texts, take part in oral activities, and produce written work with a high degree of accuracy. At higher level, students will need to study two works of literature. To take the subject at Higher Level, a grade A is normally the minimum required. Grade B is the minimum required for the standard level course.

Entry requirements

The entry requirements for the IB Diploma are broadly the same as for a 4AS programme. However, students will normally need to have C or above passes in English orEnglish Language, Maths, Science and in a modern foreign language (where taken).
