For A2, candidates must study two Cultural Topics, together with the remaining three topics:
The Multicultural Society
Contemporary Social Issues
As Knowledge of Society is not a discrete assessment objective in the subject criteria for Modern Foreign Languages, there is no requirement to study the above topics in the context of the target language-speaking country/community. However, assessment material will include authentic sources.
The requirement in the subject criteria to study aspects of the target language-speaking country/community is met in the Cultural Topics.
At present, pupils at The Leys study an author from a French speaking country/community and a French speaking region:
The French Pyrenees
