Why study French in the Sixth Form?

You should consider French if you enjoy communicating with others using language and making yourself understood. You will have to undertake independent research and background reading in an area of your choice and produce written presentations, summaries and essays.  The AS course focuses on topics such as Media, Culture, Lifestyles and Families while at A2 level you will study Environment, Society, Social Issues and a Cultural topic.  You will be assessed on your ability to Listen, Read, Write and Speak the language.
