French 3 Language and Culture (College French)

This college-credit course is for the mature student who has successfully completed the requisite two years of high school French and wants to become more academically proficient and fluent in French language and culture. After this course students will be ready to study French literature, take AP French, or pursue college and career roles that require functional French. This academically challenging course takes the student through advanced grammar to be able to read and translate complex works. The class will cover the conditional, the subjunctive, the passé simple, the past conditional, and all the verb tenses required for French literature. There are research projects and cultural activities to further general French fluency and familiarity, and to specifically prepare students for AP French Language and Culture. Oral activities in class, music, French media and presentations keep the student immersed in the language, and most of the class will be conducted in French as the students move towards fluency.
Attendance Required: Because this is a spoken language mastery course, regular active participation is required and is factored into the course grade. This course is unable to offer the flexible scheduling you may expect from TPS AP and college dual credit courses.
