Deux soirées qui sont tombées à pic!

The Year 9 and Year 10 Soirées held respectively on Friday 28 July and Friday 4 July were two wonderful opportunities to remind our students why they should continue learning French at VCE level. This is the time of the year when students have to decide to continue (or not) learning French and therefore the timing of the these Trivia soirées could not have been more perfect !

With a 'sacrée' dose of fun, a little competition 'amicale' and 'beaucoup de' social interactions, students enjoyed two wonderful evenings which in their own words they described as 'lots of fun but also good revision for our French!'. Students seemed to regain motivation (if they had lost any) and passion for their French studies !

It was also a really nice opportunity for teachers to catch up and network. A very big thank you to the wonderful AFTV team who organised these events and to all our generous sponsors who donated great prizes. 

Please view photos and the video of the Year 9 Trivia soirée and get inspired to bring your students along next year.


Matinée du français is taking place on Sunday 27 August at the Melbourne Convention Exhibition Centre.

Matinée du français is a morning of vital information on the final VCE French exams, presented by experienced Year 12 teachers, where your students can:

  • Learn some of the dos and don’ts for the oral and the written exams
  • Undertake practice listening and reading tasks in both languages
  • Learn how to make good choices for the writing section of the exam
  • See performances of the oral exam by current Year 12 students
  • Take home a booklet full of useful vocabulary, phrases, texts and practice questions as well as many useful links to key websites



Audio files for the listening section of the 2016 Matinée du Français

Matinée du Français took place in 2015 on Sunday 30 August, at the Melbourne Convention Centre.

Participants were reminded of all aspects of the Year 12 VCE oral and written examinations. Experienced colleagues presented and discussed practice listening and reading passages as well as practice topics for the writing section.
