This unit will focus on the subjects you learn at school and what you think of those subjects.

How many of these school subjects do you know or can you recognise? Remember cognates help you with unfamiliar words!

We will also be reminding ourselves of how we tell the time in French; not just using o’clock and half past but also 10 to and 20 to.

We have looked at opinion verbs in previous units, take a look at the phrases below and see how they can be used in the context of school.

‘Recycling’ language is really important in French, this means that you can use phrases that you have learnt in previous topics and apply them to a new topic. For example, in the last section we looked at opinion verbs in the context of sport but we can ‘recycle’ these phrases and use them in a new context – ‘school’.
