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.
