French GCSE Listening Practice Questions.
cgazzalcgazzal

French GCSE Listening Practice Questions.

(0)
This is a series of listening questions/ exercises modelled on past listening exams from AQA, but not using the same material. It covers foundation and higher, as well as the crossover questions. It focuses on the techniques that AQA relies on for asking questions and therefore gets students to practise the type of questioning they will face in the exam; this is often different from practice exercises found in textbooks. These listening exercises include recognition of tenses in both the materials and the questions, assimilation of concepts through vocabulary etc. This also uses the high frequency vocabulary that AQA relies on for more generic matters such as idioms for opinions and so on. There is a PowerPoint, which can be used on its own as it has the questions on slides, followed by the answers and then the transcript for each exercise. Alternatively, students can use the exam sheet that is included, and the listening exercises can be played from the PowerPoint, but students do not then need to see the PP.

French GCSE 9 - 1 Specifications - Theme 2 – Topic 4 – Travel & Tourism.

(5)
Easily adaptable for home learning. This a sample of the resource packs that I have created for the GCSE New Specifications for each topic area within each theme. This sample contains many of the slides from the original PowerPoint and aims to give you an insight into these resources so you can ‘try before you buy’. In this PowerPoint there are still 51 slides, but this is quite a lot less than the payable resource and the listening section as well as parts of reading and speaking sections have been omitted. Also in the original resources there are always answers and a whole range of worksheets to go with the PowerPoint. I hope it’s useful.
