Bonjour et bienvenus!


The new linear French A-level has been designed to extend the knowledge you have secured at GCSE and it covers a wide range of interesting and engaging worldwide issues.

Your key learning topics in the first year are : Media, Popular Culture, Healthy Living/Lifestyle and Family/ Relationships. The common thread amongst these is discovering how people speak at a personal level, and what their individual views are on these everyday topics. In the second year, you will study another four topics – Environment, the Multicultural Society, Contemporary Social Issues. In addition, you will choose two of five cultural topics for in depth study.

The course will also help you to gain a deeper insight into the French culture and French society from 17th Century to nowadays. What a great opportunity to study French films and literature!  The language department will support you and assist you in your research and will guarantee a positive learning experience.

Apart from being beneficial at a personal level, your French A-level will help you with your career paths. For those who want to specialise in languages, there is the option of translation or teaching, or maybe you want to work in the travel and tourism industry. Being proficient in a foreign language says a lot about you, your assiduity, your resilience and determination and will give you broader career options.
