Study Advice: GCSE French Speaking Exam

ARK Kings Academy Teacher teaching students French in classroom

On Wednesday 25th and Thursday 26th June year 10 students will be sitting their first GCSE French Speaking exam. This is worth 15% of the overall GCSE grade and is a great opportunity for students to bank marks before the exam.

The topic of the assessment is Healthy Living. In the assessment students will be asked 6 questions related to health, food and exercise, and they must answer each question with around 30 seconds worth of speech. They will not be allowed any notes in the assessment.

How to prepare:

I would expect students to spend at least 20-30 minutes practicing each question.. Friends and family can help with this revision by asking questions in English, and prompting students when they get stuck.

Thank you for your support. We wish all of our students the very best of luck! Please do not hesitate to contact Katie Marshall on 0121 459 4451 or k.marshall@arkkingsacademy.org  if you would like any further information.
