Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs A. March

Over 80% of the world's population doesn't speak English as a native language. If you wish to become a global citizen, French is a widely spoken language required for working with international organisations such as the UN, UNESCO, NATO, Medecins sans Frontieres, International Red Cross, WTO etc.
Transferable skills and the many cognitive benefits include: critical, creative thinking and problem solving, proofreading, public speaking, better literacy and listening skills,  mental agility, social confidence, cultural empathy, adaptability, perseverance, and better memory retention. 
The Year 10 course enables students to become conversant in everyday French scenarios. They will learn to communicate about habits, routines, events and location.  They will learn to compare and contrast, give and follow directions, ask, accept and decline invitations, seek permission, talk about obligations, quantity and cost, and talk about the future and the past.
Engaging and practicable topics include daily life, past events, hobbies, travel, food and shopping.
