About the Course
We teach French or Spanish during lesson time and a number of other languages are available as extra-curricular subjects.
Through the course ‘ALLEZ’ students develop an understanding of the French language in 4 skill areas and through the course ‘ZOOM’ students develop an understanding of the Spanish 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.
Years 9, 10 and 11 will follow this course.
Students follow the Edexcel specification and are examined on the skills of listening, reading, writing and speaking. In French students will use the Edexcel VIVA textbook where as in Spanish STUDIO text book is used to support their learning. They will also be provided with a GCSE vocabulary book and will have weekly vocab and verb tests.
