AQA French GCSE (2026) – Listening – Dictations


This 38-page workbook, which includes transcripts and answers, contains Foundation and Higher exam-style dictations for the new AQA French GCSE (first teaching 2024, first exams 2026).

There are 9 topics, mirroring the AQA specification’s themes and sub-topics (see screenshot of the contents page for details).

Following the AQA SAMs, for the foundation questions, there are 4 sentences per topic and for the higher questions, there are 5. I have checked the vocab for every sentence meticulously against the AQA prescribed vocab list. For both Foundation and Higher, there are 2 words (one in the penultimate and one in the last sentence) that are not on the prescribed vocab list, as per AQA guidelines.

The download includes all of the sound files for the workbook, read by me! There are 81 sound files in total.
