Description

This year-long sequence of courses in French is designed to reinforce, practice, and build upon previous skills. All classes are conducted in French. They are fast paced, interactive, and focus on continued review of grammatical structures, conversational skills with native speakers, discussion of short videos, music, poetry, Francophone themes, and Internet news clips. Students are expected to use French in discussions, increase their reading and writing skills through study of selected literary excerpts. Winter quarter focuses on theater, reading plays and performances of short scenes from them. In spring, students work with a selection of films and a short novel. Through focus on in-depth discussions of French identity, history, and culture, students learn to analyze, compare, and write about aspects of film increasing their acquaintance with media vocabulary.
