NCEA Level 2 French

Course Description

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.

 Topics Covered: 

  • Education
  • la Francophonie (French speaking countries)
  • The French exchange 
  • My city
  • The environment
  • Health
  • Les Vacances de Petit Nicholas 

At Year 12 our students can take part in the annual French exchange to Paris for six weeks. We welcome the Parisian students into our class in June/ July and we return to Paris in December/ January.
