    The French courses used reflect the world pupils live, using contexts familiar to them in their everyday needs and teaches them the vocabulary they need to communicate with young people on topics that interest them.

    The French course in Key Stage Three builds the foundations for GCSE study. There is a focus on language learning skills and strategies needed to become independent language learners.
