Prerequisite: French 3 and teacher recommendation

IB French, Standard Level is a world language course established by the International Baccalaureate Organization. The primary focus of the course is on language acquisition and development of interpersonal and interpretive communication skills through exposure to a range of written and spoken material, such as oral exchanges and print information regarding current culturally and globally relevant topics. Students who successfully complete IB French SL can participate in spoken and written communication of increasing complexity across various time frames, ask a variety of questions, make comparisons, express opinions and synthesize information successfully in French. Students will deepen their understanding of Francophone cultures by exploring their products (e.g., art, books, music, laws, conventions, institutions); practices (patterns of social interactions); and perspectives (values, attitudes, and assumptions).
