Year 10 French

Course Title

Year 10 French


This is a one-year course dedicated to learning about the French language and culture. Term 1 is called ‘La Vie Scolaire’. In this self-directed unit, you will create a documentary comparing school life in France and Australia. Term 2 is all about ‘Bon Weekend!’ and the sports, hobbies and activities we enjoy doing. The unit ‘Allons en Ville!’ in Term 3 is particularly useful if you intend to travel, as we learn about places in the town and asking directions. We finish in Term 4 with a film study of WW2 based on the true story of Louis Malle: ‘Au Revoir Les Enfants!’ This has a focus on the plight of the Jewish community during this time.
