French conference for Year 10 pupils

Report by Mrs Talbot

Year 10 French pupils enjoyed a day out in Manchester on Thursday 9 March when they took part in a GCSE French conference held at the University of Manchester's Hulme Hall.

The conference provided the pupils with a deeper knowledge of the new GCSE French exam and the activities focussed on spontaneous talk as well as translation skills. As the course was run and delivered by Senior examiners for MFL, pupils and teachers came away with plenty of essential tips to help them achieve top grades.
