French and Spanish

Dr E.P. Scarlett High School offers two language learning opportunities: French as a Second Language 3 year program and Spanish Language and Culture 3 year program. The French as a Second Language 3Y (years) program and the Spanish Language and Culture 3Y program are intended for students who are beginning their study of French language or Spanish language and culture in senior high school. These courses are designed to help students develop individual potential and to be better prepared for daily living, as well as for the challenges of the international world of work and travel. These two programs of studies allow students to acquire language skills in situations that reflect life experiences. Students who take second language programs may continue to use their language skills in work, community, educational or travel settings.  Students receive 5 credits for 125 hours of course work.

AP® French Language and Culture

This course will be offered to students with an average of 80% in grade 11 in their FLA 20-1 class. This course is for motivated and self-directed learners. Students may earn 1st year university credit for the course or receive advanced standing and enter the second year course directly. The revised AP® French Language and Culture Exam will assess student proficiency in the three modes of communication (Interpersonal, Interpretive, and Presentational) and will continue to feature multiple-choice and free-response questions. A thematic structure enables students to study a variety of concepts in interesting, meaningful, engaging contexts along with a focus on the learning objectives of the FLA 30-1 program of studies. Students will develop an awareness and appreciation of aspects of the target culture, practices and perspectives.
