New A level - reading activities - Médias - authentic articles - exam questions - edexcel

I selected authentic articles dealing with current affairs/issues in France following the A Level textbook (Edexcel) guidelines. In this booklet you will find 3 articles with an exam style questions for each article! As they are authentic, they are challenging and I use them mostly for homework asking students to search new vocabulary (vocabulary highlighted in yellow needs to be searched by students before having a go at answering questions) The answers are given, you will have to remove the “(v)” that shows where the correct answers are before printing this file for your students. There is also a box where they can write (in English or in French) facts they have learned from these articles (as this could be used for their speaking exams). Reading authentic articles will also train them for their IRP

A level French Speaking Revision Booklet

A level French Speaking Revision Booklet

A revision booklet aimed at A level students doing the AQA spec. Primarily, it includes a list of the exam regulations as well as the structure of the exam. As this booklet focuses on the stimulus card aspect of the exam, it also has a mark scheme for that. It includes an example of a stimulus card on all 12 themes used throughout AS and A level AQA French. There are three questions on each card, and subsequently, there are possible answers to each question on each card to show students how to structure their planning and best use their time. There is space for extra annotations and translations to be done as the comments are in English. As the students are required to ask their teacher 2 questions relating to the card, there are also 4 examples per card of questions students could ask. At the end of the booklet, there are tasks for the students to complete. These tasks include: plan your own response for three of the questions under ‘possible questions to ask teachers’ where students are encouraged to think outside the box. practice doing one of the cards with a peer, taking it in turns to swap roles and be the examiner. This helps them to get to grips with the mark scheme. lastly, there is an example of transcript between a student and an examiner. The students should annotate this with what the student did well, and how they could improve. By doing both of these, the students can learn something.
