Level 2 French
Teacher in Charge: Ms M. Dean
Skills in listening, reading, writing and speaking are further developed through a variety of activities including whole class teaching, group work, peer to peer review and one-on-one time with the teacher. A French assistant is available to work with all classes.
A variety of themes are covered and these are decided in negotiation with students. We may look at such issues as environment, immigration, French culture and traditions, equality, new technology but these will be decided according to student interests. Communicative competence is the key aim of this course. French music will also be studied.
In terms of assessments, the students will be required to do two internal and two external assessments. There is a third internal available for those students who would like to gain more credits (2.3 interaction).
HVHS offers a 2 week-trip to France for senior students every 2 years.
