Online Tuition and Exam Preparation

Private GCSE French Exam Preparation Online

During a long career, the tutor has successfully prepared many students for their GCSE French exams. The Department of Education supports formal assessments in foreign languages. This is why it is important to have relevant tuition in this subject. The online lessons are referenced to the Core Curriculum and Examination Specification. The private tutor always makes sure that the learners are progressing and achieving the set targets.

After successfully passing the GCSE exams, some choose to progress to the next level. We prepare our online lessons to help students build up their vocabulary and use correct grammar. We ensure successful GCSE French exam preparation and the highest score possible.

Before starting the actual lessons, an initial assessment is carried out. This is necessary to establish the level of knowledge that learners have. It helps to prepare adequate materials which are used in tutorials. At regular periods of time formative assessments are performed to ensure that progress is taking place. Besides many exercises, the teacher offers a lot of past exam papers. In this way, learners can experience the procedure and the structure of the real assessment. They also improve their knowledge of the language.

Assessment checklist

What is Included in the French GCSE Exam

There are 4 sections in each exam: reading, writing, speaking and listening. For the listening part, students are offered a recording. After having listened to it, they have to answer questions which check their understanding of the taped text.

For the reading part, students are given a text with questions to check if they understand the main ideas. There may be multiple-choice questions, or they must write their answers.

In the writing part, students must create a short essay on a given topic and do a bilingual translation. For the speaking part, there are two assignments: a role play and the description of a photo card. Here they have to show their knowledge of vocabulary and grammar learnt.
