Sixth Form students taking French at A Level were joined by native speaker Richard Peltier for an interactive day of discussion conducted entirely in French. Students in Years 12 and 13 from both Divisions spent time with Richard to further their language learning.

Year 12 students talked about new family types, the dangers of cyber-society and the ‘Seventh Art’, cinema in the French-speaking world in their sessions. Year 13 students discussed whether prison is a good or bad solution, teenagers’ views on the right to vote and their political commitment, and the cultural heritage of the French-speaking world and whether it is a benefit or disadvantage.

All of these complex topics were set in the French-speaking world and linked to the A Level curriculum. Students were invited to join in by answering questions, debating the issues and reacting to videos and quotes.

The day was a great opportunity for students to increase their confidence and fluency while speaking French.
