Salut! Parlez-vous français? Now let’s learn to speak it even better! In an engaging and fun classroom environment, this course we will continue to build on the French I foundations, strengthening proficiencies in both written and oral expression. You will develop and enrich your existing vocabulary and begin to employ more complex grammar and sentence structures, while learning to use French within and beyond the school setting for personal enjoyment and enrichment. French will be used as much as possible in order to create a fun and immersive environment; however, English will be used to explain grammar and to introduce certain cultural concepts. An online textbook will provide you with continuous access to native, audio files, songs, and flashcards, as well as, cultural videos. Let’s get started and laissez les bon temps rouler!
