Pupils get 2 periods of French in S1 and S2 and 1 period in S3. French is also offered as an option in senior phase. The four aspects of speaking, listening, reading and writing are covered with the emphasis on speaking and listening. By learning a language pupils are able to make connections with different people and their culture and play a fuller part as global citizens.
A variety of topics are covered and we use a lot of songs and match up games to reinforce vocabulary. Lotto (French Bingo) is the firm favourite.
