KS3 & KS4
For French teachers who are teaching to a demanding specification, Doddle French is an online teaching and learning platform for KS3 and KS4.
It provides a wide scope of engaging resources that support specialist and non-specialist teachers to build a foundation for students to be able to read, write, speak and understand French confidently in their exams.
WHAT’S IN DODDLE FRENCH?
Our French presentations break down each topic into steps which enable effective learning.
They include questions and interactive elements to engage students and will save teachers time when preparing a lesson.
There is a bite-sized revision resource per topic at both key stages, covering key vocabulary and phrases with native speaker audio.
In these resources, students will also find a range of lexical and syntactic patterns that appear repeatedly so that they can learn them for use in their own texts.
Reading, Listening and Vocab Quizzes
At KS3 our topic quizzes provide listening, reading and grammar exercises for all the topics on the curriculum, using native speaker audio, relevant examples and engaging activities.
At KS4 every sub-topic on the GCSE specification has a listening quiz, a reading quiz and a vocab test, with audio by native French speakers to emulate exam audio. These bite-sized quizzes give you flexibility and allow you to assign targeted intervention to students who are struggling with a specific skill.
Our grammar quizzes at each Key Stage explain and test grammar topics at a level appropriate for your students.
There are also more advanced grammar quizzes at KS4 to stretch more able students.
Translation and Literature Quizzes
These quizzes provide students with extra practice on the literature questions in the listening and reading exams, and on the translation element in the reading exam.
These sections can be scary for students as they have a lot of hard and unfamiliar language. But these quizzes provide an opportunity to practice so that students are familiar with the format, don’t panic and have the skills to answer the questions.
We have created a range of exam-style quizzes to help your students to tackle the new exams.
There are questions that address the literature requirement, and both reflect the significantly raised level of challenge of the new specification. We have 3 of each tier for listening and 3 of each tier for reading.

Doddle provides really meaningful work for students. If other MFL teachers want to establish a classroom full of students who are engaged, want to learn for themselves, revise and try to improve, then I would absolutely recommend Doddle.
