SAMPLE GCSE FRENCH QUESTIONS

QUESTION 1


Planning a party

Read the following email from a friend, and answer the multiple choice questions below by giving A, B or C.

Salut,

Je t’envoie cet email parce qu’il faut organiser le fête pour l’anniversaire de Damien !

A mon avis, une date idéale serait près du début septembre, avant la fin des vacances d’été. Qu’est-ce tu dirais du premier samedi du mois ? L’année dernière, son fête a eu lieu le quatorze septembre, et tous les invités étaient de mauvaise humeur, parce qu’ils devaient aller au collège le lendemain !

On doit embaucher un DJ – combien d’argent devrions dépenser ? Bien sûr, la musique est importante, mais il ne faut pas oublier les autres choses comme les amuse-gueules et des décorations qu’on pourrait vouloir. On peut en parler.
Aussi, dans une semaine, je vais visiter la sœur de Damien pour demander son opinion. Veux-tu m’accompagner le soir du dix-huit ? Chez elle, on peut finaliser nos plans. Je n’ai qu’un but – une soirée géniale !

Bisous,

Laetitia

School life and the future

Robert: Mes études favorites ont toujours été les sciences et les mathématiques. Depuis l’école primaire, j’ai eu beaucoup de succès, obtenant des bons résultats constamment. Maintenant, je suis en train d’appliquer à des programmes de stage dans l’industrie. Donc, je prévois de faire une licence d’ingénierie à une université de pointe, et décrocher un emploi dans une firme de prestige.

Tara: Au collège, je ne m’intéressais pas aux matières traditionnelles académiques. Au lieu de cela, je me concentrais totalement sur la musique ; j’adore composer, et je peux jouer plusieurs instruments, ma favorite dont est la clarinette. Comme résultat, je luttais pour gagner les bonnes notes. Eh bien, je serai une musicienne célèbre dans le monde entier !

Ryan: J’ai dix-sept ans, et je suis en terminale au lycée. Je me considère un étudiant moyen, qui se sent bien en classe, mais, j’ai une panne d’inspiration lorsqu’il s’agit de mon futur métier. En ce moment, je ne veux que sortir avec mes amis et ne pas penser l’avenir.
