The French 12 curriculum is broken down into two main categories:

  • Thinking and communicating: Students will learn how to communicate in a variety of contexts and for different purposes, both orally and in writing. Special emphasis will be on how to express sequences of events, doubts, wishes, possibilities, explanations of needs, emotions and opinions.
  • Personal and social awareness: Students will explore cultural expression in diverse communities, as well as connections between language and culture in the international Francophonie.

The purpose of this course is to continue building on the solid foundation of French you acquired in French 11. French 11 is the prerequisite for French 12. By the end of this course, you will be able to express yourself in French more effectively, being able to adapt your communication strategies to different contexts with more ease. Oral and written work will enable you to respond in increasingly more sophisticated ways, through discussions of wishes, possibilities, opinions, etc. You will also develop a keener sense of cultural expression and linguistic variations among French-speaking communities around the world.
