Important Note

This PX Classroom will only take place if a sufficient number of students reserve a place. To reserve a place, submit your order for this course as if you were going to buy it, but select ‘Direct Bank Transfer’ (not card payment) and only transfer the money much later once the Teacher has confirmed to you that the course will indeed take place (Do not create a new order in order to pay as that will purchase a second place on the course!). If the course does not run, there will be nothing to pay and your order will simply be cancelled.

Course Overview

This one-year course is a clear and simple introduction to French. It covers the essentials of French grammar and vocabulary. There are lots of opportunities for speaking and listening due to the small class size. This course does not require any prior knowledge of French. It is an ideal preparation for the Common Entrance Exam at 13+ and, when followed by the PX French KS3 Level 2 course, for the PX IGCSE French course.

Course Method

The course uses the textbook French for Common Entrance One, published by Hodder Education and endorsed by the Independent Schools Examinations Board (ISEB) (ISBN 9781471867170). This textbook should be procured in advance.

Lessons are friendly and interactive, encouraging all students to ‘have a go’. They include a blend of spoken and aural practice with clear, structured, grammatical instruction.

Optional written homework assignments and vocabulary learning are set each week from the textbook to consolidate and develop learning. Homework is self-marked using provided answers. Written assessment pieces are set throughout the course and marked by the teacher.

Term 1 comprises 12 weekly lessons. Each lesson lasts 50 minutes.
