French II

Prerequisite: French I or satisfactory placement exam results
In this upper-elementary-level course, we will continue to develop our skills in speaking, understanding, reading, and writing French. By participating in communicative classroom activities, reading texts in French, listening to songs and watching videos, learning and reviewing grammar structures, writing short compositions, and acting out role plays, you will have an opportunity to develop basic French language proficiency. Topics covered may include daily life and routines, food and shopping, housing and directions, childhood and family memories, communication and technology, school and hobbies. Grammar will be studied in context and may include: present tense, near future, passé composé, imparfait, reflexive verbs, object pronouns, commands, comparisons, and adjective placement/agreement. Furthermore, we will discover the intersection of language and culture as we explore authentic cultural materials from Francophone communities.
