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.
