The Core French curriculum endorses, what is commonly referred to as, the communicative experiential approach. In this approach, the focus of instruction is the purposeful use of the language to perform real-life tasks, share ideas, acquire information, and get things done. Grammar instruction plays a supportive role – to provide useful strategies to facilitate communication and comprehension. In this, course students develop the skills of reading, writing, listening, speaking and interacting. They also learn about the important role grammar and culture play in gaining a deeper understanding of language.
