Oxford Home Schooling’s French IGCSE course is designed to prepare students for the Edexcel IGCSE in French (4FR0) for examination in June 2015 and later years.
Assessment is by two written examinations and a speaking test. Paper 1 (Listening) lasts 35 minutes and Paper 2 (Reading and Writing) lasts 1 hour 30 minutes.
This speaking examination, Paper 3, lasts a maximum of 10 minutes, more details can be found in the introduction to the course.
The OHS course is designed to match the Edexcel 4FR0 specification and is divided into five modules as follows:
There is also a CD designed to give you practice in your speaking and listening skills.
The Oxford Home Schooling course is perfect for students tackling the IGCSE French examinations set by Edexcel. The IGCSE French course is not intended for complete beginners; it assumes that you have some experience of the French language, probably a basic knowledge from school days. Don’t worry, however, if this was some time ago! The first few lessons of the course are designed to remind you of the basic building blocks of the French language and to prepare you for the IGCSE-style exercises in the rest of the course.
As well as preparation for the IGCSE French exams, this course also aims to give you experience and confidence in a wide variety of French conversational situations. Edexcel also set an oral (speaking) exam (Paper 3).
