Objectives

This course takes place 100% online.

Each week you will take part in a 1.5h/2H face-to-face virtual class via Zoom, which will run during the stated course schedule above. Additionally, you will also gain access to our online platform Apolearn, where you can interact with your teacher and your fellow students. This is also where your teacher will upload class content during the course. If Zoom and Apolearn are new tools for you, rest assured - we will be guiding you along the way! All students will receive more information on how to use both platforms prior to your first class.

Year 8 (A1) is for students who are in their second year of learning French. Building on their existing knowledge, students will learn how to talk about food and drinks, the news and historical events, plan activities with friends, whilst immersed in the French culture.

This program is designed to be taken over a full school year, so students can progress to the next step, Year 9 (A2) the following year

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 levelled curriculum based on the textbook Adomania by Hachette editions. In this course, students evolve from understanding new words and sentences in French through a variety of media to producing them in different contexts through structured role plays and educational games. As they become increasingly confident French speakers, students will 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 spelling of French through interacting in the language. Ultimately, our goal is not only to teach students language skills, but to have them interpret the world from a different perspective.

Course prerequisite: Year 7 A1 OR 1-2 years of learning French.

Our Year 8 A1 program is divided into 4 terms in the 2021 school year: 

  • Term 1: Feb 1 - Apr 1
  • Term 2: Apr 19 - Jun 26
  • Term 3: Jul 12 - Sep 18
  • Term 4: Oct 4 - Dec 11

By the end of Term 4, students will have learnt all the necessary basics to move on to the next learning step in 2022: Year 9 (A2).

To ensure progression and efficient learning, it is recommended to enrol every term for the full length of the school year, for a full completion of the program.
