AP French Language and Culture

Offered to Grades 11-12
1 credit (Middlebury FuelEd)

Prerequisites:

The AP French Language and Culture course is an advanced language course that prepares students for the AP French Language and Culture exam. It uses as its foundation the three modes of communication: interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational. The course is conducted almost exclusively in French, and is based on the six themes required by the College Board: global challenges, science and technology, contemporary life, personal and public identities, families and communities, and beauty and aesthetics.

AP French is not available to part-time students.

The course teaches language structures in context and focuses on the development of fluency to convey meaning. This course has been built around the practices published in the AP French Language and Culture Course and Exam Description.

In this course, students should expect to:

  • Listen to, read, and understand a wide variety of authentic French-language materials and sources
  • Demonstrate proficiency in interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational communication using French
  • Gain knowledge and understanding of the cultures of the francophone world
  • Use French to connect with other disciplines and expand knowledge in a wide variety of contexts
  • Develop insight into the nature of the French language and its culture
  • Use French to participate in communities at home and around the world
