AFwife Claire Posted January 12, 2011 Share Posted January 12, 2011 We are in a small jr. high co-op, and the other 3 moms and I were discussing plans for the next few years. We were discussing language plans, and the mom who teaches that said that if we wanted to do AP French (so that our kids could hopefully pass and get out of college language requirements--we are in VA, so I know even the state schools have higher requirements that other states), then we needed to start next year so that our kids could have 5 years of French--French I-IV, and then a year of AP French. Is that pretty standard? Five years of a language to do well on the AP exam? Languages are NOT my thing at all, so I have absolutely no frame of reference on this. The mom who teaches is proficient in French (majored in it, worked as a translator), and is very competent in Spanish as well, so she obviously does know what she is talking about. But I just thought 4 years of language in high school would be sufficient, even for AP? Gah, so much language just to get out of it for college! Has anyone taken the AP French exam and can give me their take on it? Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
