French is offered as a Junior Certificate subject and a Leaving Certificate subject in John the Baptist Community School.  Our goal is to provide students with the skills they need to become independent learners, learn how to learn and seek ways to improve their performance. Linguistic skills offer communicative competence through listening, speaking, reading and writing.  These qualities support literacy and boost transferable skills and knowledge. We aim to equip our students with the linguistic skills which will enable them to expand their horizons, travel, interact with native speakers, show compassion and tolerance towards others and choose from a wider range of careers.
