    SYLLABUS FRENCH III  

    International Baccalaureate French III (French 4 IB)

    Objectives and Philosophy:


    The aim of the third year course in French is to attain an acceptable level of proficiency in the four skills of listening comprehension, reading, writing, and speaking. In order to reach this level of progress, students must practice all four skills as much as possible. They are expected to use only French in the classroom and are encouraged to spend at least 20 minutes per day outside of class time engaged in some French activity, either in completing homework assignments, viewing French movies, listening to French music, or conversing in French. By the end of the year, they should be able to carry on a conversation that would be understood by a native speaker of the language, and they should be able to understand both spoken and written texts. The students should have a general knowledge of the Francophone world and some understanding of the variety of cultures represented.
