Junior Cycle French
The junior French programme aims at providing the students with the basic communication skills to allow them to participate in everyday interactions in a francophone country or with the francophone community at home, and to be able to engage with the language in oral, aural and written forms. It also helps students develop their knowledge of cultural and social matters of countries where French is the main language.
The Junior Cycle assessment includes two classroom-based assessments (an oral piece and a compilation of written pieces) and a final exam at common level.
