11 French 1

Course Description

Teacher in Charge:

This course will build on the language from year 9 and 10 across a range of topics.  

Students study everyday life, leisure, travel, and tourism from a French and New Zealand perspective. There is a focus on including cultural knowledge with language. The course builds confidence in communicating accurately in both present, past and future context.

All language courses are constructed on the basis of three MCEA assessments (15 MCEA Year 11 credits) and one NCEA internal assessment (5 NCEA credits). The internal NCEA assessment will be a speaking standard, involving conversational French.  The MCEA assessments will be writing, listening and reading.  The MCEA course will align with future level 2 requirements, as well as provide extension opportunities and a solid base for further pathways.
