Learners studying French cover a wide range of language and content including, looking at yourself and those around you, your local area and the wider French speaking world and aspects of travel and tourism. This will help to support them with their reading, listening, speaking and writing skills in the foreign language. Learners are encouraged to engage with authentic literature and media sources to develop their understanding of the language and create a cultural profile about what they understand about Francophonie culture.
At GCSE level, learners will study for two years and achieve AQA GCSE French. Listening, speaking, reading and writing will each be assessed as 25% of the course.
