The French 11 curriculum is broken down into two main categories:

  • Thinking and communicating: Students will learn how to communicate in a variety of contexts, both orally and in writing. Special emphasis will be on discussing personal experiences, narrating stories, identifying perspectives in texts, expressing opinions, and making comparisons.
  • Personal and social awareness: Students will explore regional variations in French, the importance of having French skills in the world of work, as well as connections between language and culture.

The purpose of this course is to continue building on the solid foundation of French you acquired in French 10. French 10 is the prerequisite for French 11. By the end of this course, you will be able to participate in a conversation with greater confidence, being able to acquire information through a wide range of strategies more consistently. Oral and written work will enable you to respond in increasingly more sophisticated ways, through comparative work, recounting events, sharing reflections, etc. You will also be able to identify linguistic and cultural variations between different francophone regions and communities.
