Our French Department worked with students to get stunning results last Summer but they are not for sitting still and are already look to go better still with the current GCSE cohorts.

From this week the Memrise will become a focal point for improving student vocabulary and weekly knowledge tests will be set on Satchel One to help with the revision of keywords.

The Memrise package includes native speaker videos and Artificial Intelligence Language Partners so it is bringing the best of the real and virtual world to learning. You can visit the website here.

Charlotte Wilkinson, French teacher and project lead, said: “We know that a broader vocabulary only improve subject confidence so we are pursuing this with Memrise. We are also going to be factoring in ‘sweet’ prizes and a weekly leaderboard so watch out for updates in the weeks and months ahead.”
