What to expect
A levels lessons are suitable for children taking French at the exam and needing help to get prepared and to pass their exam, regardless of their level. The child can start the year of the As or the A level.
Exams can be stressful, this is why it is important to get well prepared. During the lessons we will work alongside school, to further and consolidate the existing knowledge and also work towards the exam requirements. As a result, it’s really important for me to know what their French teacher wants them to improve so I can fully support their learning. Few months before the exam we will do few past papers (reading and listening) as it is essential to be familiar with the exam format. It is also a really good way to widen the vocabulary which is really helpful for these two parts of the exam. We will also work on writing and speaking using the A levels’ topics (based on the syllabus) they need to know in relation with the level of the exam (As or A level). Few weeks before the exam, I will give the child few advices on how to take up the different parts of the exam according to their level. I am always really supportive and will be happy to help until the exam starts and to answer any questions after it. Parents have a big role on their child’s success, this is why communication has a big importance to me. It is essential that you know how your child is doing during the lessons and what we have been working on. This is why I always give a feedback (oral or written) at the end of each lesson and why I let you know the homework I give to your child. Having homework to do at home is really important for their learning journey, as a result it is important to make sure that it is completed.
