What will I learn in this subject? 

You will be assessed in 4 skills areas; Listening, Writing, Speaking and Reading.
There are three broad themes:

1. Identity and Culture
2. Local, national, international and global areas of interest
3. Current and future study and employment

The themes are revisited and expanded across a variety of topics over the three years.
We use a variety of different ways to learn, including using ICT and authentic materials such as music and film.

What can I do after the course? 

Research has shown that learning a language improves your problem solving skills and makes you more confident in difficult situations. No matter what field you are interested in, most employers now consider a qualification in foreign languages to be desirable. In the European Union and the wider global market, the ability to communicate in French is a highly sought ­after skill.

Any achievement in this course can be used as part of an application to a potential college or employer along with other grades you have achieved when you leave school. Many universities and colleges prefer candidates who have a languages GCSE.

You will need: 

  • to have a good attendance, punctuality and behaviour record
  • to have a real interest and commitment to the subject including the willingness to speak in French
