12 French

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Dr A. Moir Scott

Year 12 French

In Year 12 French you learn more abstract and complex language than you have learned previously so that you can communicate information and ideas and justify your opinions.

Topics include:

  • Aspects of French-speaking society: The changing family, cybersociety, volunteering
  • Artistic culture in the French-speaking world: a culture proud of its heritage, contemporary Francophone music, the seventh art
  • Cinema and literature

We approach these topics through our blended text-and-online course and add to it other authentic resources. We continue to use recommended online resources such as Education Perfect and ImmerseMe.

Example of a Year 12 Interaction:


13 French

Continued study in Year 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.)

Course Costs and Equipment/ Stationery requirements

The following are highly recommended: $20 Education Perfect; $20 ImmerseMe; $20 Renash. Suggested stationery: refill and folder.
