Not surprisingly one of the best ways of helping students in French to get a higher grade is to give them a clear summary of the criteria the exam boards use, written in a student friendly language.
And that was what this booklet gives. The authors have analysed the writing and the speaking criteria of various exam boards and have come up with a simple and clear summary of these criteria written in a student friendly language. These criteria have been divided into four sections; each section corresponding to a GCSE level while at the end of the booklet students can find a very useful list of recommended idioms and high level expressions.
Additionally the booklet includes the conjugation of the 50 most used French verbs, including the modal verbs, into different tenses.
This is followed by different language structures which the students can use to develop their writing.
The use of this booklet is proven to improve students’ levels not only in writing and speaking, but also in listening and reading.
