All students in RHS from S1 to S3 have the opportunity to complete their Broad General Education in French for 3 periods per week.
The French courses which students follow are Métro and the lively, interactive course called Studio. These allow pupils to develop their skills in Reading, Writing, Talking and Listening. Film studies, cookery projects, French breakfasts, inter-class vocabulary competitions, Business brunches, blogs with partner school in Lyon and trips abroad inject their learning with fun, as well as making lessons a meaningful experience and broaden their knowledge of France and its many different customs and culture.
Both courses have built-in assessment and homework activities. Homework is an essential part of teaching and helps to establish a routine of high expectations and achievement. Pupils are expected to revise vocabulary on a daily basis.
