The course aims to build on the knowledge acquired at GCSE and will help you further develop your language skills, as well as encouraging an awareness of the cultural differences between Britain and French-speaking countries. The course is suitable for anyone with a keen interest in speaking, reading, writing and listening to French and who is interested in learning about French grammar.
In Year 1 you will study aspects of French-speaking society and artistic culture; for example, the changing nature of family, cyber-society, the place of voluntary work, heritage, culture and tourism, French music and cinema.
In Year 2 you will study aspects of French-speaking society and political life; for example, multicultural society, the marginalised, crime and punishment, young people and politics, demonstrations, strikes and immigration. You will also study a film and a book.
Standard A Level entry requirements apply - the minimum requirement is at least four GCSEs at Grade 5, plus English Language at Grade 4. For this course you will need a Grade 6 or above in GCSE French.
Many of our students go on to study a higher education course in Modern Languages at university, or those with a European or international dimension. Alternatively, students can study a language with other subjects such as Business Studies, Law or Sciences.
