Prerequisite: French II
French III reviews and builds upon the topics and skills developed in French II so that students will be able to speak and write the language in a greater variety of contexts and become increasingly more self-directed and confident in using French in everyday situations. This course encourages further development of interpersonal and interpretive communication through more advanced speaking, writing, reading and listening activities. Students who complete French III successfully can participate in spoken and written communication by creating sentences and paragraphs of greater complexity relating to a wider range of topics. Additionally, students will deepen their understanding of 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.
