We’ve worked closely with teachers to ensure our French specification inspires, challenges and motivates students, enabling them to progress to the next stage of their language learning.

To cater to you and your students in all educational contexts, we’ve included a wide variety of set texts and films. They’re rich in cultural references and will broaden your students' horizons and knowledge.

A range of support resources will also be provided to guide you through the teaching of the specification.
