Interaction programmes for Key Stage 5
Our Key Stage 5 Interaction programmes focuses on the traditional skills required for AS (Advanced Subsidiary) and A (Advanced) level qualifications in French.
Taking guidelines from the WJEC AS GCE in French and the Advanced GCE in French based on examination requirements from 2009, we have selected invaluable areas where your students will benefit from an Interaction programme.
WJEC Guidelines Summary of AssessmentAS and A Level Oral requirements include general conversation and examiner led and structured topics. Our Interaction programmes can offer real opportunities to develop student’s skills in the following way: * Oral French – Contact with French students of the same age and abilities during the residential Interaction trip encourages dialogue and enhancement of conversational French. * Written and reading objectives - can be developed by one to one contact with a French child the same age as your students during the trip as well as via correspondence between the groups before and after the residential. Using our extensive links with Educational bodies in Northern France, Voyager link your UK school with a suitable profile French school in the area. We do this well in advance of your trip so there are plenty of opportunities for email and video conference correspondence before even reaching France. We actively encourage UK and French pupils to get to know one another before the trip in the belief that pupils will feel more comfortable learning alongside students they already know.
