French A Level Skills
Length of course: 5 half-day sessions
Boards: Suitable for all boards
This course is suitable for the NEW specification across all boards.
Our skills-specific course incorporates practice of the following examination skills, with 5 x half-day sessions drawing upon Year 13 level material.
- Oral work
- Listening comprehension
- Reading comprehension
In each session, emphasis is placed on areas of grammar and vocabulary that commonly cause problems for students. 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 French.
Please note that the course only addresses the language component (75-85%) 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.
