The goal of this course is to deepen students' immersion into the language and culture of the French-speaking world. The course engages students in an exploration of both contemporary and historical French culture. Students learn about various aspects of contemporary French society, including geography and population, ethnic and regional diversity, travel and transportation, climate and weather, holidays and food, sports, and current affairs. This class is taught exclusively in French and prepares students to take the AP French Language exam. This assessment requires students to demonstrate their level of French proficiency across the three communicative modes: interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational.
In addition, this course fosters and enhances knowledge and comprehension of Francophone cultures through six themes structuring the curriculum: Global Challenges, Science and Technology, Contemporary Life, Personal and Public Identities, Family and Communities, Beauty and Aesthetics. These themes furnish a frame of reference allowing students to practice interpersonal, interpretive and presentational communicative skills including two-way interactions in both writing and speaking through creating email responses, engaging in role play-dialogues, interpreting of audio, audiovisual, and print materials, and expressing information and ideas through short and extensive oral and written presentation.
