What skills will I learn? 

Speaking- Develop your confidence speaking in groups in both English and French and hold conversations in French.

Listening- Identify and understand key points from spoken conversations.

Reading- You will be able to read authentic French texts including extracts from novels and classics.

Writing- Create a range of genres from blogs to short essays in French.

Translating- Switch confidently between languages.



There are many useful websites and apps that students can use to improve their language learning. The following are all free to use:

BBC Bitesize

Are you passionate about Languages and Music? is a free music website which acts as a gap to fill a listening task.

Simply set your language to French, listen to the song and decide what the missing word is.

Especially great practice for KS4 Higher pupils!
