12FR

Level 2 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 communication in less familiar contexts.
Students have to be committed to learning vocabulary and language features and to preparing their internal assessments. Cultural studies are an integral component of the course.

The topics in year 12 are more focused on community and society facts. our typical themes are Technology and social Media; the environment; a trip to Paris,; the French cinema; French fairy tales; a little History course of French History and Arts; study film "Amelie" and any other topics that interest the class. 

At the end of Year 12, five students have the opportunity to go to spend 6 weeks in France in Angoulême during the summer break. (depending on Covid 19 situation) It is a great opportunity to live an authentic experience (especially Christmas) as well as becoming a confident and fluent French speaker.  As part of the exchange the French students come to visit us in July for six weeks.
