Content Overview:

Bienvenue au niveaudeux! This year we will explore different cultures, vocabulary, grammar, literature, and media within the francophone world. Some topics will include food, health, technology, and the arts. We will learn verbs in the imperfect, future, and conditional tense, as well as many other French language structures. Classes will be conducted primarily in French. While this is challenging and requires a lot of patience and tenacity, immersion is one of the most rewarding and effective ways of learning language. Students will be expected to complete homework on an almost nightly basis, as well as participate in discussion, give oral presentations, and create meaningful projects. We will also explore music, film, and other interesting cultural aspects of French culture from all over the world. Students will be evaluated by the “5 C’s” standards of foreign language learning, which will build students’ speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills.

the 5 c s
The “5 C’s”
  • Communication – communicate in languages other than English
  • Cultures – gain knowledge and understanding of other cultures
  • Connections– connect with other disciplines and acquire information

Classroom Expectations:

As a general rule, you should always come to class on-time and prepared and respect your materials, peers and teacher. I encourage flexibility and a positive attitude – we are all going to make mistakes and occasionally sound funny as we’re learning a new language – it’s normal! Let’s encourage each other! Participation and active engagement in activities is also essential for success.

Note: Absolutely NO ONLINE TRANSLATORS are permitted for use on any and all assignments.
