Course Summary

This A Level allows you to study a range of social and cultural topics that relate to the countries where French is spoken, such as changes in family; music and cinema and marginalised groups in society. By studying these topics you will gain fluency and the skills which will allow you to manipulate the language confidently.

You will also study a film and a book, and choose a topic to research independently in your second year of study. We use a variety of resources in lessons, and you will take part in pair and group work as well as working individually. You will have access to extensive online resources at home and in college in order to support your progress.

Weekly speaking sessions with a native speaker will help build up your confidence and improve your fluency as well as enhance your listening skills. We encourage students to travel to France and we currently run a trip to Paris.

French can be studied in combination with any course at A Level or in Higher Education. Graduates in modern languages are in high demand and languages students’ skills are highly valued by both universities and employers. Former Wyke French students have gone on to university to read Law with French; Chemistry with French and Arabic.
