Hi, is anyone doing A-Level French who is currently online? I'm thinking of buying a lever arch file for each of my subjects.

Do you think I'll need one for French, really? I mean, I've been considering how I'd split the file up with dividers. I can only think of having different topics i.e. drugs, education etc. on different dividers. But I don't think there'll be enough work to do this plus the topic areas or quite vague.

What would you do? Or what have you done?

Hi

I did AS German last year (currently starting A2), and we follow a similar syllabus.

Personally I found folder dividers very useful. We studied four topics each split into three sub-topics, and my ring binder (didn't need a lever arch as there wasn't enough content to quite justify the extra price and annoyingly-large size of one) contained a folder divider for each of the four topics, with the work under the three sub-titles in each in separate plastic wallets. It's also useful to have a separate folder for work you do this year that's not AS specific - such as vocab and articles you've read online for extra reading.

Hope this helps

thanks for the reply!

this is the overview of the topics:

the only way I could imagine dividing it is by having 1 section for general stuff, as you said, and then 2 more for leisure&lifestyle and the individual&society?

Ooh, it's unusual that they're grouped them into just two topics. The ones we studied were Life & Style (Exercise, smoking/alcohol/drugs/eating disorders, holidays), Relationships (friendship, family, love/marriage/parenthood), Media (TV, advertising, computers/newspapers/video games) and Popular Culture (Cinema, Music, Fashion/the celebrity cult/image). I think the best thing would be to talk to your teachers, or maybe just wait and see what suits you best personally when you get further into the course

I do A-level French and I did definitely need my lever arch file this year. I just used dividers to split it into different topics, grammar, homework and exam stuff/past paper questions.

Well I guess it all depends on your sixth form but at mine, they gave us booklets for each topic and we also had to do a lot of writing outside of that, so I definitely needed some storage.
