French A2 Skills

Length of course: 5 half-day sessions
Boards: Suitable for all boards

Our skills-specific course incorporates practice of the following examination skills, with 5 x half-day sessions drawing upon A2 level material.

• Oral work
• Listening comprehension
• Reading comprehension
• Writing

In each session, emphasis is placed on areas of grammar and vocabulary that commonly cause
problems for students. Students are set writing and translating exercises and are encouraged to
memorise key vocabulary and use idiomatic structures in French.

The AS course is for the LEGACY specifications only:

Please note that the course only addresses the language component (75-80%) of the exam, it does not give specific coverage to set texts or topics. Where students specifically want help on French texts or topics, this can usually be accommodated by means of individual tuition. Please contact the Course Director to discuss your precise requirements.
