- Entry into the winter and spring quarters requires proficiency in French language equivalent to the successful completion of Beginning French I (for winter) or Beginning French II (for spring). Contact the instructor for an assessment of proficiency.
This year-long sequence of courses in French emphasizes mastery of basic skills through a solid study of grammatical structures and interactive oral activities. Students work on all four language skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing. Classes use immersion style learning and are conducted primarily in French. Students develop accurate pronunciation, build a useful vocabulary, work regularly in small groups and learn to develop conversational skills. Classes are lively and fast-paced with a wide variety of fun, creative activities with music, poetry, videos, role play, and use of Internet sites. Winter quarter themes focus on poetry and fables, regional French traditions, cuisine, and contemporary issues in France. Spring quarter focuses on themes from the Francophone world along with continued grammatical study. Students learn from viewing films from Francophone countries and reading a small book of legends and tales from these countries. Through oral reading and discussions in French, students expand skills in vocabulary proficiency, accurate pronunciation, fluidity, and situational role-plays based on the legends. Throughout the year, students use the Community Language Laboratory to accelerate their skills.
In fall, students may sign up for either a Monday/Wednesday section (Section A) or a Tuesday/Thursday section (Section B). In winter and spring, all students will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
