On adore le français ici à Kylemore College !

We love French here at Kylemore College! We are delighted that every student can study French from the beginning of First Year right through to the Leaving Certificate or Leaving Certificate Applied Programme.

Studying French is an excellent way to improve your communication skills.

In classes, strong emphasis is placed on being able to speak French and students are encouraged to do this from the very beginning. Our students quickly become confident enough to enjoy speaking to each other in pairs and in groups, through games and competitions, and have conversations about themselves, their family and their interests.

You will also learn about La Francophonie - the French-speaking world. Did you know that over 220 million people speak French in the world? You will study the cultures of French-speaking countries from France, Belgium and Switzerland to Canada, Morocco and the Ivory Coast, through films, songs and the lives of famous footballers, actors and singers.

French can be an important subject when applying for university. In fact, it is necessary to have a Modern Language at Leaving Certificate level to apply for degrees in the areas of arts, human sciences, law, social sciences, commerce, medicine and health sciences.

Being able to speak French also opens up greater possibilities for employment – and not just in France! French is a language used by many big multinational companies and organisations. You could find yourself working in Tourism and Travel, Catering, the Fashion Industry, or working in the European Commission, the European Parliament or in International Aid Agencies. There is no end to the opportunities that await you if you have French!

We look forward to welcoming you as you embark on your wonderful journey into the French-speaking world!

À bientôt !
