GCSE French & Spanish
Students can opt to study either French or Spanish at GCSE level. Both GCSE’s are made up of four units (reading, writing, speaking and listening).
Students are taught French and Spanish throughout Years 7 & 8. In Year 9 students opt to continue to study one of the two languages in more depth and detail. Throughout students follow the national curriculum for languages which aims to ensure that all pupils:
· understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources.
· speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation.
· can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt
· discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied.
