Year 10 French

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms L. Mills.

Learning another language includes music, culture, food, films and fun! 

In Year 10, languages are a full-year course. In 2024, there may be some flexibility for students wishing to take only one semester of French - please talk to Madame Mills for further information.

In Year 10 French, students can continue learning about the language and cultures of the French-speaking world in an interactive and exciting way. You will develop your speaking, listening, reading, writing and presenting skills in French, as well as building your cultural understanding.

Students will learn vocabulary and grammar within useful and relevant contexts that will equip them to be able to communicate in real-life situations. In Year 10, this includes:

- asking for directions

- ordering food from a restaurant, cafe or bakery

- expressing opinions

- talking about sports, music, hobbies

- talking about daily routine

- comparing school life in New Zealand to the French-speaking world

Please note: if you did not take French in Year 9, you will need to meet with Madame Mills to see if you meet the criteria to take it as a subject for Year 10.
