French Language and Culture
Students who enroll in Ap French Language should already have a
good command of French grammar and vocabulary and have
competence in listening, reading, speaking, and writing, Although
these qualifications may be attained in a variety of ways, it is assumed
that most students will be in the final stages of their secondary school
training and will have had substantial course work in the language.
The course should emphasize the use of language for active
communication and help students develop the following :
- The ability to understand spoken French in various contexts
- A French vocabulary sufficiently ample for reading newspaper and
magazine articles, literary texts, and other non-technical writings
without dependence on a dictionary.
- The ability to express themselves coherently, resourcefully, and with
reasonable fluency and accuracy in both written and spoken French.
Course content can reflect intellectual interests shared by the
students and teacher (the arts, current events, literature, sports,
etc.). Materials might well include audio and vidio recording, film,
newspapers, and magazines.
The course seeks to develop languageskills (reading, writing,
listening, and speaking) that can be used in various activities and
diciplines rather than to cover any specfic body of subject matter.
Extensive training in the organization and writing of compositions
should also be emphasized.
