NCEA Level 2 French
Teacher in Charge: Ms A. Boyle-Curnow
At this level we work on further fluency in oral and written communication and extend the students’ cultural awareness through the introduction of literature and topics of relevance to modern French society. The language skills we practise include giving and responding to advice, approval and disagreement, expressing opinions with reasons and recounting past events.
Listening and Reading skills are assessed in the end of year examination and the internal assessments are speaking and writing portfolios.
