Essential Calling all Leaving Cert Students studying

French (higher level) !

As you may know, our Leaving Cert students in Cork have obtained the highest grades in the country in French year on year.  This is due to the smart no-nonsense approach we take in preparing our students for the exam as well as the fantastic learning methods we have developed over the past 20 years in the grinds industry. Due to the huge demand around the country from our followers on Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter we will be holding an exclusive Leaving Cert French Workshop in Dublin at the end of the Easter Holidays.

Topics to include :

How to complete a perfect Reading Comp; How to studying for the Listening exam effectively;

Oral : we will select themes that we feel could come up in the oral exam that could be challenging for students and provide exclusive material to the students on the day ie refugees, 1916 anniversary; immigration; LC points system etc – these will be decided closer to the day and we will take into account requests from students attending the workshop.

Written : diary and opinion pieces will be tackled during the session. WE will NOT include letter-writing or emails as these questions are marked harder due to the scoring scheme from the Dept of Education.

All students will receive a workshop handout with all content included – exclusive oral and written material; worksheets to be completed on the day and at home to perfect the structures taught; exclusive tips including how to cut down learning quickly, how to maximise points in the Language and Communication part of the written paper, and how to study effectively to ensure students reach their potential for June. While we will share exclusive material on the day, so close to the exam we will not give buckets of new material. Instead we will equip each student with skills in knowing how best to manipulate the material they have already learned to get most marks. This is the smartest approach at this point of the year.

On the run up to the event all those attending will be invited to join an exclusive Essential French Workshop Facebook Page so students can share and swap study tips.

The seminar will be presented by Natasha Lynch, BCL, MBS, Director and Founder of Essential French.
