Grade B in French GCSE
70% listening, reading and writing; 30% speaking. The examination consists of three papers. Assessment is 100% examination-based.
In addition to your AS level course you could also take up an Enrichment course that gives you the chance to learn a new language over 14 weeks or to develop your practical skills in an existing language at post GCSE level (German, French or Spanish).
In both instances the courses focus on developing speaking and listening skills in a vocational context for particular use in future employment.
What Students Say:
“I’ve enjoyed studying French because I like learning new languages and how other people in the world live. The teachers are very friendly and I feel I’ve learnt a lot under their guidance and have enjoyed the work that’s been set. I also really enjoyed the French exchange which was very useful. There is an excellent working environment here at OSFC, there are lots of study areas where you can go to catch up with work and there are lots of resources available.” – Michael Hargreaves. Michael is planning to continue his studies at university when he leaves College.
