Culture - world geography (French-speaking countries), science (how to plant a garden), history (The French Revolution). Culture topics include Paris, Eating at home and eating out in France, celebrations on the French calendar, the regions of France.
We learn using songs, videos, films and games, Education Perfect and ImmerseMe, and the online resources that come with our text, Studio 2.
A Year 10 Speaking Interaction Example:
Learning French is an end in itself but it is also a stepping stone to learning other languages and a good skill to support any career. This is because French is spoken in 59 countries around the world. Regardless of your intended career, French will open doors to exciting new opportunities that would not otherwise be available to you.
