A Cultural Approach

Introducing Perspectives, a new Intermediate French program that offers a unique focus on the cultural perspectives of the French-speaking world by embedding cultural products and practices into every aspect of instruction. Perspectives teaches students to communicate inside and outside the classroom with competence and understanding in the target culture.

What sets this program apart?

Perspectives includes a clear focus on the products and practices that relate to cultural perspectives, and offers a rich variety of authentic materials, including documentary films, short video clips, authentic audio selections, and literary readings.

Perspectives is built to develop students’ intercultural communication skills according to the latest ACTFL World-Readiness Standards. Intercultural communication is a complex activity that combines cross-cultural knowledge and language skills.
