Le français, c’est une langue sonore et musicale ! Profitez J
Our aim in all years is to develop skills in all four French competencies; Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing.
We wish to foster a love of the French language and culture and hope that all our students will be able to communicate to a high standard.
Students learn to communicate through French within the classroom, and practice scenarios and role plays for basic communication through French. For example, we look at going shopping, using public transport, talking to penpals, going on holidays. These are your French survival skills!
Students study French across a broad range of themes, and equip themselves with knowledge in order to discuss themselves and their interests, current affairs, social issues, and to read journalistic and literary texts.
All students undertake Oral Exams at Senior Cycle.
