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. 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 French Language assessment 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 French 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.

All French students need to be able to write the following text type formats "the French way" for the exam:
-un journal intime/blog
-un article
-une lettre officielle (une lettre de reclamation (letter of complaint)/candidature/a un auteur)
-une lettre a un ami
-un discours (a speech)
-le guide de recommandations, la brochure
-le recit d'imagination
-le compte-rendu (summary)
-une declaration à la police
-une critique d'un film/livre
-une anecdote
-une page internet

The declaration to the police rarely shows up. An anecdote is a funny story. The compte-rendu is a factual account of an event such as a school trip to Cambodia for humanitarian work. The recit d'imagination is the task where you write part of a story based on starting sentences given to you by the question.
