French and Spanish (KS3)
The course assumes no previous knowledge and takes the learner from absolute beginner in year 7 where lots of key vocab is taught around the very basics of communication such as basic greetings, colours, numbers etc to talking about themselves, family, pets, school, free time and where they live, all in present tense but introducing the future tense enabling phenomenal progress in the first year.
In the second year, all three tenses are introduced couched in further topics of personal interest to pupils such as holidays, hobbies, food, music, technology and cinema.
In the final year of this key stage, more age appropriate topics are explored such as careers, the environment and social responsibility, fitness and all with the cultural backdrop and customs of the Hispanic and francophone countries. Support for consolidating the skills learned is provided by our wordmats and online consolidation platform giving pupils the perfect base from which to progress easily onto KS4.
