The new course has been designed to give a greater focus on countries and communities where the target language is spoken with the aim of inspiring a cultural curiosity. Students will develop a sound understanding of the grammatical system and structure of the language. The end of course exams will test their use of accurate grammar and structures appropriate to the tasks set. For AS and A-level students the compulsory content will cover aspects of French-speaking society, looking at current trends to include the changing nature of family, ‘the cyber-society’ and the place of voluntary work. The second element will be artistic culture in the French-speaking world to encompass a culture proud of its heritage, contemporary francophone music and cinema: the 7th art form.
