Further development of competency in reading, listening to, writing and speaking French is the goal of this whole year’s course. Students are introduced to complex language and grammatical structures in a variety of media, including an example of French literature. They also focus on skills that will assist them to communicate spontaneously, such as how to debate an issue, deliver a critique, negotiate, relate an event and outline a point of view. Deepening student understanding of French culture is also an aim of the course. Preparation for assessment against NCEA Level 3 standards is an important aspect of this year. Evaluation of students’ skills in speaking and writing French will be based on the development of portfolios of work. Students will also have the opportunity to research and write two reports on a global issue of interest, and gain an extra 9 credits (at NCEA Level 2).
