GCSE French

At GCSE you learn to develop and extend your language skills in a variety of contexts. The topic areas covered are: Media and Culture / Sport and Leisure / Travel and Tourism / Business, Work and Employment.   We aim to give you as many opportunities as possible to practise your skills in real situations, whether by interacting with visiting students or by taking part in a trip yourself.

By the end of the course, you will be able both to understand and to express yourself in varied vocabulary, structures and verb tenses. To gain top grades, you will need to demonstrate that you can not only give opinions, but explain your reasons too. Of course we will build on the knowledge of past, present and future tenses which you have gained in KS3.

The controlled assessment takes place in Years 10 and 11, when you will have had the maximum amount of time available to develop your language skills.
