French A Level

French is about...

  • deepening your knowledge of France:the country, its people and culture;
  • developing grammatical understanding of the French language;
  • enhancing your skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing in French.

The proposed core content in the new A Level is as follows:

  • social issues and trends;
  • political and artistic culture;
  • grammar
  • works: Literary texts and films (there will be a list of set works from which to choose.)

The content is assessed at the end of the two year course with three examinations:

  • Paper 1 - Listening, Reading and Writing (2 hours 30 minutes: 40%)
  • Paper 2 - Writing (2 hours: 30%);
  • Paper 3 - Speaking (21 - 23 minutes: 30%)
