"Learning another language is not only learning different words for the same things, but learning another way to think about things." (Flora Lewis)

The skills of listening, speaking, reading, writing, viewing and presenting in French are further developed within less familiar contexts. A range of topics will permit students to communicate on social and global topics, to give and justify their opinions and to persuade and advise others. Students are developing transferable communication and linguistic skills that can be applied to any future work or study.

Students will choose up to four of the standards offered. They can choose from two external standards (Listening and Reading) and three internal standards (Writing Portfolio, Interaction Portfolio or Speech).
