Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss L. Mills

"The limits of my language mean the limits of my world." (Ludwig Wittgenstein)

Learning another language should always involve music, culture, food, films and fun! 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 Level 1, the skills of listening, speaking, reading, writing, viewing and presenting in French are further developed. Students will gain confidence to communicate about their own world and develop intercultural communication skills.

Students will choose up to four of the following skills to be assessed: reading (external), listening (external), writing (internal portfolio), interaction (internal portfolio) and presentation (internal).
