Y9 French Citizenship Task

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.

You have been studying the topic of food and drink this half term.  You must now think beyond the basics and ask yourself the questions, is our attitude to food different to the attitude of French people?  Do they have a more healthy relationship with food?  Do they have more or less obesity problems than us?  Do they eat fast food as much as we do?

The task: 

You must research the answers to the above questions and produce a detailed essay in English (the more detail you give, the better the level will be) which illustrates your findings.  You may include any other resources such as graphs, images and statistics if they are relevant to your essay.

Remember:

You must refer to the Citizenship level descriptors so you know what you must do and include in order to access the highest level.
