2, Clothes and fashion
3, School and opinions

5, Where you live
Through these topics you will develop the skills to become good listeners and readers of the

becoming more conﬁdent with the French language, you will also look at some of the cultural
aspects of French life.

fascinating insight into the Parisian way of life.

4, Other countries around the world where French is spoken.
You will be expected to have the following equipment in all lessons;
