French III

Students in this intermediate/advanced course will have a short review of intermediate French, then will proceed to increasing vocabulary and formulating more advanced sentences. French III students will also begin exploring French literature and poetry, learn Bible passages, and dig deeper into Francophone history. Instruction will be enhanced by audio exercises to improve speaking and listening comprehension. Instruction for French III is rigorous and fast-paced; the teacher will present much of the class in French.
