Course Outline:

Students, some of whom will go on to university study, take on more responsibility in monitoring their own progress. Speaking in French as much as possible will be encouraged. Visiting Francophone students give great opportunity for this. Students have access to a variety of departmental resources – French films, Information and Communication Technologies and French magazines.

Students will undertake some literary studies as part of the course. Language topics are chosen according to the students' interests, the work being based on Level 7 and 8 of the Learning Languages Curriculum.

Where Does It Lead:

Having done French to this level, students should be able to communicate with people from French speaking countries, with an appreciation of other cultures. All language study develops the ability to think clearly and to write precisely - increasingly important skills in worthwhile careers. Knowledge of a foreign language is essential for some overseas scholarships, and studying French to this level provides opportunities for employment in many industries, including tourism and travel.
