Learning Recommendations: In order to be successful in French 5, students should have demonstrated proficiency in French 4 with a B- or better, be comfortable speaking French in class at all times, be a self-motivated learner and be prepared to develop their language skills and cultural awareness.

General Description: AP French is a rigorous course equivalent to the third-year college course in French language and culture. French 5 strives to promote fluency and accuracy in the target language while exploring culture in both contemporary and historical context. Students will develop their awareness and appreciation of Francophone culture, practices and perspectives. Through the study of 6 major themes, students will develop their skills in three modes of interpersonal, interpretive and presentational communication. They will use a variety of authentic media (print, audio, video, etc) and support (books, movies, articles and music, etc. . .) to further their language proficiency and their written, speaking, reading and listening skills. Students will investigate and express different view on real world issues, make connections to other disciplines and compare aspects of Francophone culture with their own.



Students will learn through an interrelated series of lessons and activities that promote the use of language in a variety of contexts.
