This course is for students in their third or fourth year of learning French (typically year 9).
Year 9 (A2) is a French course for high school students that continues over 4 terms. The A2 level focuses on consolidating, practising and developing students' knowledge. This course complements what students are learning at school, giving them more confidence to speak the language, and helping them to ace their tests and exams!
Why study at the Alliance Française?
Following the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, our students develop four core language areas: speaking, listening, reading and writing. Our teaching methodology uses a structured and leveled curriculum based on the textbook Adomania by Hachette editions. In this course, students develop their knowledge of the language with intensive practice and various educational games. As they become increasingly confident French speakers, students also explore francophone culture and people. With an emphasis on authentic communication in class, this task-based approach also helps students develop an understanding of the grammar and language structures through interacting in French. Ultimately, our goal is not only to teach students language skills, but also to have them interpret the world from a different perspective.
Course prerequisite: Year 8 A1 OR 2-3 years of learning French.
