What will I study?
The A level course is designed to give you a deeper understanding of French. Not only will you know more about vocabulary and grammar, but you will also learn how people live and use the language on a day to day basis.
The A level course covers a wide range of interesting and engaging issues. In the first year you will study four topics. These are Media, Popular Culture, Healthy Living, Family and Relationships. Studying the language through these interesting topic areas build on all of your languages skills and enable you to express your own views with confidence.
In the second year you will study three further topics – Environment, the Multicultural Society and Contemporary Social Issues and also an in-depth study of two Cultural topics.
