5th Year French Programme
This programme is perfect for students who wish to get ahead for the Leaving Cert year. Many students choose the 5th year course to help identify and resolve problems they are having with the language. Others start the programme to stay ahead and maintain their high grades easily and effortlessly. This easy step by step programme guides the 5th year students through all areas of the French course at a comfortable yet challenging pace.
In EF over 35% of our students received a H1 in the exam. Nationwide, just under 7% of Leaving Cert students obtained a H1 in Higher Level French [increased to 14% in 2022]. We are so proud of the fact that our students have obtained the highest grades nationally in Leaving Cert French for the past 19 years. These results are proof that Essential French remains the leader in French Tuition.
We limit the number of students who we enrol in our 5th year and Leaving Cert programmes every year to guarantee that our material remains EXCLUSIVE to those attending EF. No other student in the country will have access to this material which WOWS examiners every year.
