All students study French for 5 lessons per fortnight in year 7 following the EXPO 1 course. SEN students have a reduced number of lessons, 1 per week, and therefore do a differentiated version of the course. In year 8 we divide the 5 periods between French and Spanish so that the majority of students study 2 languages. SEN are the only exception to this as they continue with 1 lesson per week and so just study French. Students begin EXPO 2 for French and Mira 1 Express for Spanish.


Topic areas covered in both languages include:


Introducing yourself, your family and your pets

Talking about your school

Describing where you live

Inviting people out

Hobbies and sports

Food and drink

Daily routine
