French Vocabulary List General
French GCSE Vocabulary List
This vocabulary list will be a valuable guide for teachers when planning their teaching and learning
programmes and preparing candidates for the assessment. Please note that this list should not be
seen as a self-study aid, as only brief meanings have been given and candidates may need help
from their teacher/tutor to interpret some items correctly.
Foundation Tier: Assessment tasks for Foundation Tier Listening and Reading will be based on
material in this vocabulary list. The assessments will contain some unfamiliar vocabulary but this
will not be tested.
Higher Tier: Assessment tasks for Higher Tier Listening and Reading will be based on material in
both the Foundation and Higher Tier lists. Assessments will contain some unfamiliar vocabulary,
and some of this will be tested, since the national subject criteria require candidates to use a range
of techniques to deduce meaning.
Speaking and Writing
In Controlled Assessment tasks, candidates may use vocabulary from the Foundation and Higher
tier lists but can also use vocabulary that specifically suits the tasks they choose to do and their
own personal interests.
Prior knowledge
It is expected that candidates will be already familiar with the following:
Numbers – (ordinal and cardinal)
Days of the week, months of the year and seasons
Towns, countries and nationalities
Feminine and plural forms of the words listed
Prefixes and suffixes of words already listed
Target-language words used in English
English words used in the target language.
Grammatical items and structures figuring in Appendix B in the Specification (e.g. conjunctions,
prepositions, both simple and compound, reflexives, common adverbs and adverbial phrases, etc.)
Straightforward and common cognates
Please note that some easily recognisable cognates may not be present in this list; however,
others have been presented as a help to teachers and candidates. Cognates included in this list

are those that are written similarly to their English counterparts, but pronounced in a markedly
different way.
At Higher tier, candidates should know how to interpret suffixes as linguistic markers showing
relationships between different parts of speech and have an awareness of the function of prefixes
to modify the meaning of the root: e.g.
réserver
réservation
übernachten
Übernachtung
producir
reducir
