Belvedere College - The French Exchange

The French Exchange

The French Exchange

French is a compulsory subject taken by all pupils to Leaving Certificate level. Strong emphasis is placed on communicative skills and classes are generally conducted through the medium of the target language. Teachers of French make great effort to hone all four language skills; speaking, listening, reading and writing in preparation for Junior and Leaving Certificate examinations.

Students are also encouraged spend time in France during their six years of study. Simon Murphy and Louise Curtin organise the Lyon Exchange for TY students and it is a great opportunity for students to practise their language skills and to gain first-hand experience of French life. Other activities include inter-school debates, excursions and competitions.
