11 French

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Dr A. Moir Scott

Year 11 French

In Year 11, you learn practical, transactional French, that is, all the language that you need to go on exchange in a French speaking country. Ours is a blended online course that covers language in three themes:

  • Identity and Culture (Me, My Family and Friends; Technology and Everyday Life; Freetime Activities; Healthy Living; Customs and Festivals)
  • Local, National, International and Global Areas of Interest (Home, Town, Neighbourhood and Region; Social Issues; Global Issues; Travel and Tourism)
  • Current and Future Study and Employment (My Studies; Life at School and College; Jobs, Career Choices and Ambitions).

French culture is naturally integrated throughout each context. In addition, at the end of the year, we will take part in an intercultural understanding unit with other language classes. To support your learning, you have access to Kerboodle, Education Perfect and ImmerseMe.

A Year 11 Interaction Example:

Continued study in Year 12, 13 and at university; exchange and scholarship opportunities; DELF exam; travel and tourism, business, communication, and enhanced opportunities regardless of the career you choose. (This is because French is spoken in more than fifty countries around the globe and on all five continents, and is one of the official languages of the United Nations and the Olympic Organisation.)
