Access French 2 consolidates previous language skills, using the familiar framework of Language Focus panels, learning tips and assessment checklists. It looks at different topic areas in greater depth and goes on to cover more practical matters such as dealing with your finances, methods of communication, buying a property in France and the world of work. A wide range of activities based on realistic resources and situations affords plenty of opportunities for reading and writing authentic French, enabling learners to communicate at a higher level. Each of the 10 units begins with a variety of revision activities and there is frequent consolidation of important grammar points, giving learners the confidence to move forward. Units end with a Decouverte de la Francophonie section exploring the customs and traditions of French-speaking countries. Access French 2 covers all the necessary topics, grammar and vocabulary for GCSE, LLAS OCR Intermediate Level (the new Language Ladder scheme) and Level 2 (National Language Standards). Students who have completed the course will have achieved the necessary entry requirements for AS and DELF level.
