Oral: Due to our streamed classes, all areas of the oral are covered at a level that each pupil is comfortable with. Our oral teachers are French nationals so that accent and pronunciation is perfected. With our very small class sizes, the programme is individual to each pupil and the attention to detail is excellent.
Listening : Students will start with easier listening material and progress to Leaving Cert. past papers. All pupils are given the work on CD to practice at home, along with study guides and tips on how to approach this tricky part of the course.
Comprehensions: We use a variety of texts to challenge students, while also looking at past LC pass level comprehensions to build up vocab and confidence before attempting the honours comps.
Written: We drill the 3 main tenses into our pupils in 5th year to ensure that these are perfect before heading into the LC year. We also focus on opinion pieces, messages and diary entries. All of our written material is unique to Essential French students, so that each student will clearly impress the examiner with the style of writing that is mastered with us.
On completion of the course, at the end of April, we offer extra classes free of charge right up to the Summer exams. We tailormake these classes to suit different schools and what is coming up in each school’s summer exam. Students are encouraged to let us know what themes they want covered. Students are also offered a free oral practice session in preparation for the oral, in school summer exam.
