Ideas for AQA French GCSE controlled assessments

    I have a private student who wants to do the AQA GCSE this year, all four units.
    I have taught privately before at this level, but it was always the teachers at school who set the controlled tasks. This time I have to set the tasks myself.
    Is there a chance, somebody out there who does this every year, could pass on to me their questions for the oral and written assessments? I have had a look at the ones suggested on the specifications, but it's always nicer to have some that somebody has already used in the past! Thanks!

    No answers? That's a shame. I always used to think this was a good place to come for advice and the like.

    Anyway, some ideas off the top of my head -


    • An article about a holiday you've been on
    • My Dream Holiday
    • An interview about healthy living
    • A diary
    • The Best Weekend Ever!
    • A brochure advertising your region abroad
    • A job interview
    • A radio interview (about any topic)
    • Telling your exchange partner about life in a British school and the differences
    • Telling a foreign visitor about your town

    You can twist them round to fit either skill, to be honest. I usually divide each task up into 4 or 5 chunks, prepare each one separately, and then put them all together, ie. Holiday would break into 50 words on - Journey / Accommodation / Activities / Next Year? and then put them together into a 200 word piece.
