What will I study in A Level French?

We follow the AQA specification. At A Level we study French Social Issues and Trends; Political and Artistic Culture; Grammar; Literary works (a book and a film). You will also undertake an Individual Research Project which is an in-depth study of a topic of your choice. The course builds on the skills acquired at GCSE and develops your knowledge of grammar for the purposes of practical communication. A weekly individual session with the French Assistant will enable you to develop your speaking skills rapidly. At the end of the course there will be a speaking test in May and in June there will be a listening, reading and writing examination and an additional writing examination.

Where does A Level French lead?
