The French department makes use of a wide range of resources including podcasts, films, magazines and assorted subject-specific web sites. Lesson time is divided into a variety of ways to meet the exam requirements – class discussions and oral practice, individual research-based study based on a list of classic films and books and ‘traditional’ teaching of grammar and translation with plenty of question and answer work. There are regular tests to help you monitor your own progress but also to help you overcome the difficulty of organising the vocabulary and verbs that need learning. The aim is to provide a full, dynamic and highly enjoyable programme of work.
