French

Children from Years 2 - 6 study French language and culture for one hour per week.French A

Our program gives students the opportunity to develop an understanding and appreciation of another culture and the ability to communicate with members of that culture in both the written and spoken forms. Students learn French by building on their progressive knowledge from each year level.

Lessons are based on themes (Me, My Family, Weather/ Seasons, School, Hobbies, My Home, Celebrations, Food, Finding Your Way Around Town etc.) to provide interest and a base for real language learning. Music and technology are incorporated throughout the program to further engage the students.

Strands covered are: Listening and Speaking, Viewing, Reading and Responding; and Writing (for upper grades).
