The French course at this level builds on the foundations laid in Year 10. It is a prerequisite for students to have completed the French year 10 course.
Students work with the textbook, a workbook and departmental resources covering the four skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. These skills are practised using the vocabulary and grammar prescribed for Year 11 French. Year 11 students will be working at level 6 of the National Curriculum covered by the following functions:

  • Give and follow instructions;
  • Communicate about problems and solutions;
  • Communicate about immediate plans, hopes, wishes, and intentions;
  • Communicate in formal situations.

These functions will be taught within the context of the following topics:

  • Making social arrangements
  • Entertainment (e.g., television, music, movies, community events)
  • Travel
  • Health
