GCSE French

Why I should study French?

French is a major language of international communication. It is the second most widely learned language after English and the sixth most spoken language in the World. French is spoken by 220 million people on all 5 continents.  Some students choose to study French for their love of the language and the culture whereas others choose it because some of the best universities request the study of a language as an entrance requirement to their courses. Languages are life skills as they develop communication skills and adaptability. Learning a language gives an edge in the job market and increase travel and work opportunities abroad.

What does the French course involve?

The French GCSE Course is made of 4 papers with each weighing 25%.

Paper 1 – Listening

Understanding and responding to different types of spoken languages. It is a written examination worth 40 marks for the Foundation tier and 50 marks for the Higher tier examination-25% of the GCSE

Paper 2 – Speaking

Communication and interacting effectively in speech for a variety of purposes. This paper is worth 60 marks and 25% of the GCSE

Paper 3 – Reading

Understanding and responding to different types of written language. The Reading component is worth 60 marks and 25% of the GCSE.

Paper 4 – Writing

Communicating effectively in writing for a variety of purposes. The Writing component is worth 50 marks for the Foundation tier and 60 marks for the Higher tier. It forms 25% of the GCSE

How will I be assessed?

As outlined above you will sit 4 examinations. The examinations will cover 3 themes and Foundation tier students will be able to achieve grades 1 to 5 and Higher tier students will achieve grades 4 to 9.

 What are my options after GCSE?

 After the GCSE course, you can choose to continue to study French as it combines very well with other subjects in further studies. A successful completion of a Language GCSE will foster opportunities in the fields of Business, Marketing, Travel and Tourism amongst others. You can choose to pursue a AS Level in French or opt for an IB.
