Description

Alliance Française de Toronto offers courses geared towards students wishing to prepare for the International Baccalaureate French as a Second Language exams (language B).

Specifically developed for this audience, these courses take into account both the level of the students at the time they register and the International Baccalaureate requirements.

Pedagogy

Our team of specialized teachers combines academic excellence and a strict adherence to pedagogical principles in an environment that stimulates the development of intellectual curiosity. In addition to a solid reinforcement of oral and writing skills, a significant amount of time is dedicated to the discovery of francophone cultures and the areas of study offered in the International Baccalaureate program.

Offered on a schedule made to accommodate the needs of students attending schools that are preparing the International Baccalaureate, these support courses are the ideal complement to the French programs offered in school – without attempting to replace them.

We have two programs:

  • Pre-IB for students who are studying French while aiming to join an IB program in later years (11-16 year olds),
  • IB for students currently in an IB program and preparing for the International Baccalaureate exams (16-19 year olds).

Objectives

  • Participate in a conversation
  • Make a 4-minute oral presentation and answer questions on the presentation and of a general nature
  • Answer comprehension questions pertaining to a CEFRL (Common European Framework of References for Languages) B1-level text
  • Take part in a debate
  • Write a 250-word text (article, speech, film review, etc.) at a mid-A2 to B1 CEFRL level and a 400-word text at High level (HL) – B1 CEFRL level.
