Practice Exercises for Translation Skills
For A Level French
66 interesting texts based on topics from the Edexcel A Level
specification. These texts are used in three different ways:
- The texts are provided in English for students to translate.
- Each text has 3 French grammar exercises. These gap-fill exercises test different areas of grammar required by the A Level specification, such as tenses and agreement.
- The French texts are provided in full at the end of the resource, serving as examples for the translation exercises and the solution to the grammar exercises.
Detailed 30-point marking grids are also provided for each text. These can be used for the teacher’s reference or for students to self- or peer-mark.
This resource has been created to specifically meet the requirements of Edexcel A2 Unit 4 Section A & supports Unit 4 Section C. It is a creative and versatile resource suitable for all A Level French students.
“This resource is innovative in bringing
an element of fun by offering a series of 3 different
exercises on the translation… the resource focuses on
specific points such as tenses, articles or structural
aspects such as syntax, relative pronouns etc. or
spelling.” N Clarens, French teacher
