  • 23. HOW THE AP EXAM HAS CHANGED Students will work with a greater variety of authentic materials, both print and audio, reflecting the linguistic and cultural diversity of the French-speaking world. Literary and journalistic texts but also announcements, advertisements, letters, maps and tables. Scripted dialogues but also radio interviews, podcasts, public service announcements, brief presentations. Criteria for selection are comprehensibility (accent, pace, minimal background noise/overlap) and relevance to a course theme and to a topic that could interest students. Materials will be reasonably chosen, but will also reflect a range of cultural perspectives and linguistic features.
