Course Description:

This course is holistically designed to offer students a proficiency-based, rigorous, college-level experience to maximize their potential in interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational skills in French. It is assumed that students have already learned the grammar and syntax of the language and have acquired strong skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Therefore, the curriculum for this course is designed to reinforce and sharpen these skills, with the goal of achieving mastery as defined by the AP French Language and Culture course description.
