AP French Language & Culture 12 is a challenging college-level course for students in FRAL12 who are interested in applying and developing skills that will allow them to prepare for the AP French Language & Culture 12 exam in May of their Grade 12 year.  The context overlaps with FRAL 12 through a thematic approach using a variety of cultural products, practices, and perspectives.  This course will be offered within the regularly scheduled FRAL 12 block after discussion with their French teacher.  It will be added to a student’s timetable in mid-September and is not available to be chosen in MyEd.

 

Students who enroll in AP French Language & Culture 12 should already have a good command of French grammar and vocabulary and have competence in the following four skills: listening comprehension, reading comprehension, speaking and writing. AP seeks to develop these skills further and to use the language for active communication in 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 depending on a dictionary.
  • The ability to express themselves coherently, resourcefully, and with reasonable fluency and accuracy in written and spoken French.

 

Work is structured around five themes: Global Challenges, Science and Technology, Contemporary Life, Personal and Public Identities, Families and Communities, Beauty and Esthetics.  Through these, students will learn to prepare for, study for and write a cumulative exam covering material in this discipline.  Students will have the option to write the AP exam in May (approximate fee $135); depending on the exam score, they may have the option to receive credit for a first-year university course.  All AP courses are academically approved Grade 12 courses for post-secondary admissions.
