French

French engages students in an integrated language, culture and communication program that extends student’s literacy repertoires and their capacity to communicate. French has a long history as an international language of literature and scientific standards and is a primary or second language of many international organisations including the United Nations. After English, it is the most studied foreign language. French culture and history complement the planned offerings of senior subjects to be undertaken in future years.  

In Years 7 and 8 students develop an understanding of the French language and culture. They learn to communicate using basic words and expressions as well as study the grammatical components of speech.
