Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs A. March

Prerequisite: 15 Credits in 12FRE.

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 13 course enables students to become independent in French and critically analyse the world around them, thus equipping them to be well-rounded global citizens.  NCEA Level 3 French teaches how to communicate about uncertainty, possibility and probability, develop a a reasoned argument, recount events to inform, persuade or entertain and respond to text from the Francophone world.

Topics include the regions of France, discrimination, social justice, the environment and our changing world, the media and careers.
