Method of assessment
30% of your AS Level grade is from oral exams, and the rest of your marks are gained in an exam which tests your comprehension, and includes a listening test. The A2 exam also consists of an oral (30%) plus reading and listening comprehension. In addition at A2 there is an essay component which tests your writing skill and your knowledge of French culture and society.

Why choose this course?
