A Level Intensive Summer Course
Are you looking to strengthen your understanding, knowledge and skills base in French this summer, with a view to achieving a top grade at A level in Summer 2020?
As Teacher/Examiners with experience of all the main boards, we have designed a course to make sure that you are absolutely clear about what is being tested grammatically and in terms of content.
In this course (the first of 3 standalone courses that build on students’ skills as they acquire them), we cover:
Specific content: We give clear guidelines about what is core vocabulary and how to learn it.
Grammar: We focus heavily on grammar. There is a thorough review of tenses, an in-depth look at the grammatical structures that underpin the French language and are tested at A level, and we teach these in a way that helps students master the skills needed to excel.
Join us August 12-16th for this intensive, results’ focused event which will help improve your grade and set you on a path to achieve your potential in Summer 2020.
We start the week with a thorough grammar assessment, which allows us to fully tailor the content of the course to the group’s needs and to pick up any specific areas for development for each of our students.
All content is focused on improving performance in the final exams. Every single activity you do relates to the Assessment Objectives you must master, in order to gain a top grade at A level.
You will be given explicit strategies, content and techniques to help you understand just what is required by your particular examination board and how you can quickly identify what is being tested in each paper and in each exercise, in order to gain a top grade.
We believe in creative learning, encouraging all students to participate and have fun.
A safe learning environment (for all subjects, but particularly for languages), is crucial, and we work hard to make sure students feel safe and supported so that they are able to fully focus and develop their language. We have high standards, and we achieve these through challenge and rigour. We encourage deep learning to take place through appropriate questioning and developing our students’ thinking skills in and around the acquisition of language.
Grammar is central to what we do, this is not learning by rote, but really understanding how a language is built, what its foundations are and how to use these in order to have fun and be creative. We want our students to initially take risks and we encourage and support them to do so!
Following the course, full, personalised feedback is given in written form to parents and recommendations are made to help students continue to improve through the academic year 13.
We also offer one to one tutoring and will suggest this for students who we think might benefit.
