Year 10 French (Miss O’Brien) Christmas Holiday Homework

17 12 2010

In order to better prepare for your new topics, you must locate the vocabulary section on page 72 and page 73 of the textbook. You must learn all of this vocabulary (i.e. be able to recognise it in French and also spell it correctly in French). On Wednesday 5th January, you will have a test on 50 of the words from this double page (you will either have to translate the word from French into English, or from English into French). As we have discussed, it is hugely important for you to extend your vocabulary range and preparing vocabulary in adavnce of the new topics will make the reading and listening exercises much easier.

Good luck.

If you have any worries or problems, leave a comment.





Y9 French Citizenship Task

15 12 2010

Why is it important to learn to speak another language?

The task:  You have been learning about the importance and benefits of language learning.  You must refer to the work you have done in class and carry out your own independent research about why it is important to speak another language.  You must produce a detailed essay in English (the more detail you give, the higher the citizenship level is likely to be) which answers the question.  You may include other resources such as graphs, statistics, newspaper headlines and images if they are relevant to your essay.

Check the attached Citizenship Level Descriptors to see what you must include to achieve each level.
