Prerequisite: French 1
French 2 reviews and builds upon the topics and skills developed in French I so that students will be able to speak and write in French in expanded contexts and become more self-directed and confident in using French in everyday situations. This course encourages interpersonal and interpretive communication through speaking, writing, reading and listening activities. Students who complete French II successfully can describe in French using lists, short sentences, transition words and simple paragraphs. They will be able to use contextual clues to infer meaning and to comprehend longer written and oral directions. Additionally, students will continue to learn about the products (e.g., tools, books, music, laws, conventions, institutions); practices (patterns of social interactions within a culture); and perspectives (values, attitudes, and assumptions) of French-speaking culture.
