French: 7–10 Sequence / Levels 9 and 10 / Understanding / Systems of language
Content description
Recognise the regularities and irregularities of spoken French, and use pronunciation, rhythm and stress in increasingly complex ways
  1. recognising and reproducing rhythms in more complex sentences, using pausing and intonation to signal clause sequence and emphasis
  2. using tone and intonation to indicate emphasis or emotion, for example, elle a fait quoi? Il est tellement doué!
  3. using words and expressions with more complex syllable combinations (la magnitude, les augmentations, qu’est-ce que c’est que ça?), building fluency and accuracy in relation to pitch, stress and rhythm
  4. understanding the function and patterns of use of liaisons and silent h forms in maintaining speech flow, for example, L’Hȏtel Splendide est situé au bord du lac; c’est en effet un hȏtel splendide!
  5. recognising the role of pronunciation, rhythm and pace in creating effects and suggesting relationships in oral texts such as stories, poems, songs and conversations
