Students who have completed French IV are encouraged to continue polishing their skills toward true fluency by continuing their language and culture study as seniors. French V students continue to explore the francophone world through literature, film, and online sources. These advanced students are encouraged to participate in establishing the exact program according to their particular interests.
In any given year, French V students study texts in preparation for attending performances of French works available in the area and read several classics of French literature. Students can access a wide range of sources to research French culture and find out more about French music, holiday traditions, and current events. Students in French V are eligible to participate in Falmouth Academy's biennial exchange with our sister school in Nice, France. They are well prepared to take the College Board's "French Language and Culture" Advanced Placement exam at the end of the year.
