    Description/Objectives:

    French 2 reinforces the fundamental skills acquired by the students in French 1. The course develops increased listening, speaking, reading and writing skills, as well as cultural awareness. Specific content to be covered is a continuation of listening and oral skills acquired in French 1. Reading and writing receive more emphasis, while oral communication remains the primary objective. The cultural survey of the target language-speaking people is continued.

    The purpose of this course is to enhance proficiency in French through a linguistic, communicative, and cultural approach to language learning. There is continued emphasis on the development of listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills and on the acquisition of the fundamentals of applied grammar. Cross-cultural understanding is fostered and real-life applications are emphasized throughout the course. The content should include, but not be limited to, the following; - conversational expression of feelings, ideas, and opinions in French - comprehension of spoken and written French - oral and written presentation of information and ideas, in French, to an audience - social interaction patterns within French culture - connections between the French language and culture and other disciplines - communication patterns of languages - French language usage within and beyond the school setting

    Textbook: Bien Dit French 1 Holt McDougall

Extra credit is NOT an option.

      All students need to check their grades on the student portal  on a daily basis. Certain assignments can be made up within a period of time determined by the teacher. Don't wait until it is too late. Due dates are very clearly marked on Microsoft Teams.
