OCR French Language - GCSE
Controlled coursework assessments
Your child will be learning how to write longer pieces of French. Two of these will be
prepared for oral assessment. As part of effective preparation, pupils are encouraged to
practise speaking as much as they can both in and out of the classroom. Pupils generally
find that practising at home informs them of pronunciation difficulties and pitfalls. They
can clarify these issues with class teachers after rehearsing their scripts at home.
