French: F–10 Sequence / Levels 9 and 10 / Understanding / Systems of language
Content description
Increase control of regular and irregular elements of spoken and written French, using elements such as liaisons, accents and expression
  1. recognising ways in which written language is different to spoken language, such as being more crafted, precise, elaborated and complex, (for example, the use of interrelated clauses and support detail (Le Pays de Galles a remporté, samedi, le Tournoi des VI Nations en corrigeant l’Angleterre, pourtant favourite, sur le score de 30 à 3 au Millennium Stadium de Cardiff)
  2. recognising the impermanent and fluid nature of spoken language, identifying features such as interactivity, and the use of repetition, pauses, interruptions and contractions, (for example, the dropping of ne in negative structures (je sais pas trop), incomplete sentences and reliance on non-verbal elements and vocal expression (Dis donc, t’es là? Je suis déjà là — t’es où toi?)
  3. recognising and responding to challenges associated with clarity and pace in audio texts, (for example, station or airport announcements or recorded phone messages)
