French as a Second Language: Three-Year Program of Studies (Grade 10 to Grade 12)
Alberta Education
This publication is a legal document that specifies the minimum performance outcomes for student learning within a three-course sequence. These outcomes are defined in terms of the contexts for language learning, the communicative acts that students will engage in and the repertoire needed to carry out these acts. The overarching goal of this program of studies is that by the end of French 30-3Y, students can understand and express themselves in basic situations, provided the language they encounter is clear and based on familiar topics and structures, and can use the cultural and strategic knowledge they have gained to sustain their communication. This document contains an introduction, a list of underlying assumptions, philosophy statements, and general and specific outcomes for the following three courses: French 10-3Y; French 20-3Y; and French 30-3Y. An appendix, Suggested Language Learning Strategies, is provided as supplementary information. [This document was produced by Alberta Education, French Language Services Branch.]
