  • Content will always be about something in the French speaking world. Students would not, for example, read a standard news account of an American political happening in French. The material must highlight something happening in the French-speaking world. It is extremely important that the day of the exam not be the first time that students encounter print or audio texts that represent the linguistic and cultural diversity of French speakers.
  • ALDS are divided into categories that describe different aspects of each Learning Objective area. For example, the ALD for Spoken Interpersonal Communication describes students’ ability to interact (maintain and close conversations using culturally appropriate expressions and gestures), their capacity for stating and supporting opinions, and their comprehension and use of a variety of vocabulary.“Cultures, connections and comparisons” is a thread through the ALDs. Students must demonstrate that they understand various elements of culture and interdisciplinary connections being described in source material. For example, if a student is reading or listening to a text that includes a description of a cultural festival or something similar, the student should demonstrate that they understand that a cultural product is being described that provides insight into a cultural perspective.
