Edexcel French GCSE (2026) – Listening – Foundation Dictations


This 42-page workbook, including transcripts and answers, contains Foundation exam-style dictations for the new Edexcel French GCSE (first teaching 2024, first exams 2026).

There are 20 topics, mirroring the Edexcel specification’s themes and sub-topics. For each topic there are 3 gap-fill sentences and 3 full sentences, as per the new Edexcel French GCSE exam. Separate sound files are provided for each sentence (120 in total!) and there are transcripts and accepted answers for each sentence. The vocabulary has been carefully checked against the Edexcel prescribed vocabulary list, with 1-2 words per topic (for the majority of topics) that are not on the prescribed list, again as per the new specification guidelines.

When you purchase the workbook, you should be able to download a zip folder with the sound files in. If you are not able to access the sound files for any reason, please do not hesitate to get in touch by emailing me through the contact form on this website.
