Year 9 | French

OVERVIEW

In Year 9 French students investigate links between the French language and culture. They learn to analyse and reflect on different viewpoints and experiences, including their own culture. Students learn by using vocabulary specific to the topics studied and make use of grammar to express their point of view. Students become familiar with the skills involved in learning French: reading, writing, speaking, listening and viewing.

Students will develop strategies for self-correction by developing an understanding of grammar and context. Students are made aware of how intercultural experience, technology, media and globalisation influence communication in the world today.

ASSESSMENT

In French students are assessed in the five macro skills that inform all language use: listening, speaking, reading, writing and viewing.

Connections, comparisons and communities provide the context for learning, while the interpersonal, interpretive and presentational contexts define how students use the language.

PATHWAYS

Students are able to engage with French-speaking communities in Australia and internationally in a variety of endeavours, such as tourism, hospitality, the arts, diplomacy, social services, journalism, commerce, fashion, education, translating and interpreting.
