A-Level French AQA: Understand and study in greater depth aspects of the contemporary society, cultural background, political life and heritage of France and French speaking countries. Use the foreign language to analyse, hypothesise, evaluate, argue a case, justify, persuade, develop arguments and present viewpoints in speech and in writing. Demonstrate a capacity for critical thinking, to see relationships between different aspects of the subject and to perceive their field of study in a broader context. Understand and apply grammatical systems and a range of structures as detailed in the A level specification, and use a wider vocabulary. Transfer meaning from English into the foreign language and vice versa.


Year 1 : Candidates are required to study social and cultural life of the French speaking countries, developing their skills in all areas of the language and enhancing their grammar knowledge.

Year 2 : The A-Level modules cover environmental, social and political issues and greater emphasis is placed on accuracy and use of language. Candidates will also study elements of French Cinema, Literature, Geography, History and Politics.

How will it be delivered?
