Through the course ‘ALLEZ’ students develop an understanding of the French language in 4 skill areas (listening, speaking, reading and writing.) The course develops the skills required to communicate in the target language and allows students to explore the culture of France and French speaking countries around the world. It is supported by an online resource ’Kerboodle’ that provides opportunities for students to practise each skill at home and outside of the classroom.
