French

In 2018, NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) released a new K-10 syllabus for French. Teachers implement this syllabus in 2019 with Years 7 and 9, and in 2020 with Years 8 and 10.

Support materials from NSW Department of Education

The French K-10 syllabus was developed using the Languages K-10 Framework. As all K-10 language syllabuses (2017 and later) are underpinned by this framework, teachers should view resources across all languages to access a broader range of sample scope and sequences, unit starters and assessment tasks.

Unit starters

A unit starter is a set of proposed teaching, learning and assessment strategies, arranged around a topic or theme. Teachers adapt the content to suit the needs of individual students and their local school context.
