French 3 Syllabus
French 3 serves as a continuation of French studies from levels 1 and 2. The student will master various previously learned concepts; learn new concepts; and delve into francophone culture.
French 3 incorporates ample listening through French and Francophone television and through interactivity with a multimedia program Rocket Languages. Likewise, students have significant speaking opportunities through required speaking activities and videos. Synchronous sessions are also provided for the student with live interaction in French with the teacher and other French learners. Students delve into the world of literature with beloved French classic Le Petit Prince. Finally, students will experience culture at a much higher level by touring the Francophone world on five continents. Included in their assignments are watching and commenting on French, Swiss and Francophone African television; setting up house in Paris and in Belgium; and unearthing cultural curiosities in so many other regions of the world.
This is a yearlong course consisting of 10 units. Upon successful completion students will receive 1 credit towards high school graduation.
