Students studying French GCSE will explore a wide variety of themes and topics which will build on their knowledge and skills acquired during KS3.
The specification covers three distinct themes. These themes apply to all 4 skills (Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing) which are used throughout the course.
Students are expected to understand and provide information and opinions about these themes relating to their own experiences and those of other people, including people in countries/communities where French is spoken.
Here at De Lacy we are extremely passionate about the benefits that learning a language can bring. We strongly believe in languages as a skill for life and something students should enjoy and find rewarding.
