2016/17 – 5th Year – Easter study plan

Dear 5th Year students,

Ms Crowley and myself know how much you are looking forward to your “Easter time studies”. In order to please your thirst for revisions we are giving you the link to several documents you can use along with your book “Bonne Chance”.

As a study plan, we suggest you to go through the first 6 chapters of “Bonne chance” over the next 2 weeks.

  • Chapter 1, 2 and 3: First week of Easter.
  • Chapter 4, 5 and 6: Second week of Easter.

You can plan a revision of the vocabulary of each chapter, do some of the listening (transcript of the listenings can be found here) and some grammar exercises (grammar worksheet there).

An example could be doing one listening, one page of vocab and one grammar point twice per day (once after breakfast and once after diner).

Bon courage et bonnes vacances!

2016/17 – 2nd Year – Preparation for the Oral Spring assessment

La préparation à l’Oral :

  1. Pronounciation: accent, words are properly said, [(h)], not saying the last consonnant if there is no vowel after it, don’t pronounce the e, es, ent at the end of verbs, [R], [on] – un bonbon, [an] – un banc, [ou] – un hibou, [u] – La voiture
  2. Elaboration: Could say: “J’ai un frère” or “J’ai un frère il s’appelle Fred” -> If you pick the more “elaborated” answer you impress the examiner more -> shows effort hence -> good preps for JC and LC
  3. Preparation: Learn your vocab and your answers. -> you won’t hesitate (communication) -> you understand the questions (because you have translated them) -> Flowy -> You’ll know what to say -> you won’t make grammar mistakes
