Modern Foreign Languages

French

Students will build on language skills, which they have been developing in their early years at St George's.  The course aims to enable students to understand and communicate in French by developing the four skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking. 

Communicative methodology is closely combined with a structured approach.  We shall follow the AQA GCSE course which is assessed by examinations at the end of the course. The GCSE has been developed to provide a firm foundation for progression to A-level and the specification covers the full grade range of grades.


Content:

Students study all of the following themes on which the assessments are based.

Theme 1:

Identity and culture

Theme 2:

Local, national, international and global areas of interest

Theme 3:

Current and future study and employment


Structure and Assessment:

At the end of the course there are tests in four skills: Reading (25% of the final result), Writing (25%), Speaking (25%) and Listening (25%). Students may be entered for these at Foundation tier (aiming at grades 1 – 5) or Higher tier (grades 4 – 9), depending on their strengths and commitment. All four skills are developed following the topic based approach of the GCSE syllabus.

As with the other Modern Foreign Languages taught at St George's, there is the opportunity to continue with French in the Sixth Form. 

For further information, contact Mrs C Tilley.
