Bonjour-Je vous souhaite un été merveilleux!


Summer work for French 1, 2 and French 3 Pre-AP/IB and IB MYP students

What plan of action will you design in order to practice French as much as possible in order to reach higher levels of proficiency?


This site is for students going into these classes this fall: French II MYP and French II Pre-AP, French III MYP, French III DP, French III Pre-AP.

Log: Download as many of these sheets as you need to complete the summer work. Challenge yourself to at least 30 minutes per week.
Organize these sheets in a way that is easy for me to understand and see what you did:

(same document but in word document if you want to type on it)

Vary what you use on this site each week. For example, listen to the news one week, then try some games another week, listen to music to understand them or practice your grammar and vocabulary, review some of the textbook activities and games at the bottom of the page. etc. The more variety the more skills you develop.

What plan of action will you design in order to practice French as much as possible in order to reach higher levels of proficiency?


Preparing for the AP/IB/MYP/CU Gold Language assessments that will happen in French Level IV and French V demands that you also reflect on what you need to learn and practice in order to reach your goals and the goals of the program.. Spending a little time everyday listening to French-language Francophone songs, playing games in French, watching French-language Francophone television shows cartoon, etc. online, or watching part of a French-language Francophone movie a regular basis will improve your language skills for the AP/IB/CU Gold assessments drastically. By the time the exam comes, you will be able to think in French better each day. Remember it is up to you to continue to practice. Language learning is a skill that must be developed frequently and over a long period of time.

If you find a link you want to add to this page, send it to me. Indicate the category I should put it in also. (arnaud.garcia@thompsonschools.org)
