Year 11 French


This year is your first year setting NCEA. There are a few thing you need to understand in order to achieve.


What am I going to learn?


Yera 11 French is very flexible. When looking at the NZ Curriculum you can read "Students can understand and produce more complex language. They can Screen_shot_2011-03-26_at_1.51.22_PM.pngcommunicate beyond the immediate context, for example, about past and future events. Students can understand and produce a variety of text types. (Adapted from Common European Framework for Languages, Global Scale Level A2: Strong Waystage Performance; Council of Europe, 2001.)". In other words it means that your sentences should not be short, they should be complex and you should use present and/or future tense."Variety of texts" means that you can write a email, a speech, converse with people on Twitter of Facebook, write a post on a blog, comment on somebody's blog etc. These are only a few examples of what you will be able to do by the end of the year.

It is why this year we are going through activities that happened in the past e.g Last Holidays, stories about Anna and activities that will happen in the future e.g. Next Holidays, what what you want to do later in life. Thus this year you will learn Passé Composé, Imparfait and Le Futur.
