You might be confident about speaking French but be concerned about your writing. You might love reading the language and loathe the listening. Most students are at least at ease with one of the disciplines and you would achieve higher grades if more guidance were given for your weak areas. The French Easter Revision course will cover all aspects of GCSE & IGCSE language specifications. Obviously, there can be no substitute for practice, practice and even more practice, but you do need to be sure of exactly what you need to practice!
Speaking: Role plays; Discuss a picture-based stimulus/ photo-card; General conversations; Asking questions.
Reading: Analysing common GCSE vocabulary from a wide variety of past paper material including newspaper and magazine articles, letters, emails, blogs and online posts.
Listening: Ways of revising and honing listening techniques, through repetition and analysis of French pronunciation patterns. Revising common vocabulary from recorded material from past papers.
Writing: We will look at how structure your response, how to write emails, letters and messages (both formal and informal) as well as developing stories. Translation.
Topic Areas/ Themes: There is significant overlap between the exam boards:
(AQA) Identity and culture; local, national, international and global areas of interest; Current and future study and employment.
(EDEXCEL) Identity and culture; Local area, holiday and travel; School; Future aspirations, study and work; International and global dimension.
(IGCSE EDEXCEL) Home and abroad; Education and employment; Personal life and relationships; The world around us; Social activities, fitness and health.
In addition, students will study a programme of basic grammar for GCSE which will cover verbs and the major tenses of present, perfect, imperfect, future and conditional; adjectives and adverbs; spelling and accents.
Each student will have opportunities to ask questions and individual attention can be given to more specific requests. Remember you will be made to work hard on the course but will gain much enjoyment from it.
