French

Bonjour et bienvenue. Nous serons enchantés de vous accueillir à notre ecole.

The main objective of our French Department is to give our students an awareness of another language and culture thereby equipping them to be competent in using linguistic skills while achieving educational success.

French is offered to all students in Junior Cycle and on the Transition Year Programme as a core subject for three classes per week. At Leaving Certificate level French is an optional subject and students have five periods per week. Junior Cycle French is taken at common level with a Classroom Based Assessment (CBA) in both second and third year.

In Transition Year an educational tour is a very popular option and is an annual event. Students visit many historical, picturesque and touristic sites in Paris and are immersed in the culture of the city for five days. In addition to classes in the language there are several co-curricular events such as the European Week of Languages.

Nous espérons vous voir et vous rencontrer au mois d’août. Au revoir.
