One of the most intimidating things about the transition from French GCSE to French A-level for many pupils seems to be the amount of new grammar that is introduced. Suddenly pupils are wrestling with relative clauses, the pluperfect and, of course, the subjunctive.
It is intimidating because,...
My A-level French course was certainly an enriching couple of years, but it was by no means an easy feat. I had been catapulted from learning more simple forms of French grammar and vocabulary, to applying this knowledge to in-depth discussions on French culture.
