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
