French - Second Year I
This year-long course is designed for those who are in between First year to Second year Level or beyond. It requires students to have had background in studies beyond Beginning level; a working knowledge of fundamental structures, particularly present and past tenses. Classes will be conducted entirely in French. They are targeted to bring student skills up quickly with review and enhancement of first year structures, then moving quickly to more advanced grammar. The primary objectives are communicative interactions in French through cultural studies, discussions and development of grammatical proficiency. Students will practice all four language skills in small group interactive activities: listening, speaking, reading and writing. They will learn not only to express themselves in French, but to discover much they didn't know about themselves. Fall quarter Students will particularly develop stronger reading skills through short stories, theater and poetry. Throughout the year, students use the Language Laboratory to accelerate their skills.
If you have time conflicts or questions, please email the faculty Judith Gabrielle (firstname.lastname@example.org) directly to discuss options.
