French A level Skills Year 12 & Year 13
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. The Year 12 and the Year 13 courses run separately, but both focus on the following areas:
- 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 writing and translating exercises and are encouraged to memorise key vocabulary and use idiomatic structures in French.
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 Easter Revision team to discuss your precise requirements.
