How good is the GCSE French exam? GCE O level was supposed to bring you to a standard where you could write and talk passable everyday French.

My schoolmaster friend tells me that nowadays you can get through knowing just about nothing more than that France is over the water from Dover. Certainly of my three kids not one could carry out a reasonable conversation on what they learned at school and during trips to the various countries. I have to conclude that those lessons and the trip costs were a total waste of time / money which could have been far better spent.

French was his teaching speciality and I witnesed his early days there! Yes, he knew more than me (so does the dustman) but not much more. It was just confidence.

I don't know about French, but about 12 years ago I did evening class GCSE Italian. The classes that I had been going to never seemed tomove forward, so I thoughtthat one with and exam might do better. I got an 'A', which seemed to rather shock my bi-lingual other half!

Shouldn't that be je ne comprende pas? I'm not 100% certain though!

Even longer since I did "O" level French!

Arthur Rider taught me in my GE year.
OH DEAR !

We're not going to start discussing French "O" Levels, are we ??

DOUBLE-ENTENDRE ALERT !!
