French 4

This course focuses on further enhancing the students’ communicative skills in all four language areas–listening, speaking, reading, and writing–as well as further developing cultural awareness. A variety of media, including films, web-based resources, songs, articles, and short literary works will be used to build vocabulary, enhance listening skills, stimulate discussion, improve grammar, achieve greater linguistic proficiency, and make connections with a variety of Hispanic cultures. Students will explore each of the five IB core themes—Social organization, Identities, Experiences, Human Ingenuity, and Sharing the Planet.

Seniors who would like to take the IB SL French ab-initio exam should register for the French ab-initio course (FRE450A) instead of this course.

Min-Max Credit Hours: 1.0-3.0
