Do you know your accusative prepositions from your dative direct object pronouns? If not, the Easter Revision French course is designed to unjumble the grammatical jargon. It is important to remember that many candidates drop many marks through careless or confused knowledge of grammar. Accuracy is crucial for success at A level and emphasis will be placed on mastering verbs and tenses, endings and agreements and the linguistic structures of the language.
Our French revision course is skills-specific as opposed to board or topic specific. Each morning and afternoon session incorporates practice of the following examination
- Speaking (where applicable): presentation of IRP; discussion of topic.
- Listening comprehension
- Reading comprehension
- Writing: literature essay writing; structured responses;
In each session, emphasis is placed on areas of grammar that commonly cause students problems. Students are set exercises to prepare, paragraphs to write and sentences to translate and are encouraged to memorise key vocabulary and use idiomatic structures in the target language.
Please note, as the course will focus on the spoken and written language components of the new A level French specifications, the course does not give specific coverage to set texts, topics and films. Where students specifically require revision in French literature texts or films, this can usually be accommodated by means of individual tuition. Please contact the Course Director to discuss your precise requirements and advising of the text’s title, author and edition used.
As students will be aware, a five-day course cannot do justice to the two skills of speaking and listening. Although these will be studied at some level throughout the week, success relies on regular practice and consistent revision of vocabulary. Further guidance can be given, however, on oral exam topics and presentations, as well as strategies to assist with listening skills.
Please provide as much detail as possible on your questionnaire to enable tutors to tailor the course to your needs, such as the topic of the IRP and any other topic areas covered.
