11FR

Level 1 French

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs A. Kelder

The course continues to develop the skills needed to understand and use every day written and spoken French. The focus is on effective communication and students have to be committed to learning vocabulary and language features. Cultural studies are an integral component of the course.

As the class is smaller, we have more opportunities to do some activities outside the classroom such as going to the French Film festival to the restaurant or even have Zoom meeting with classes overseas.
