Students are taught through the four skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing, and are encouraged to participate actively in lessons. 

We incorporate fun activities to support learning into the lessons such as singing French songs, playing language games, using mini whiteboards, watching extracts of French clips on YouTube and spending time practising speaking in pairs or in small groups.
