Beginning French II

Level 1.5 is intended for students with minimal previous experience with the French language. The course emphasizes communicative proficiency, with special attention to the development of oral and listening skills, self-expression, and cultural insights.

Classroom activities are varied and interactive and are focused on acquiring all four language competencies (listening, speaking, reading,
and writing) simultaneously-always in the context of a cultural narrative. Each lesson begins with a rapid flow of authentic French
presented in realistic, everyday circumstances, supported by video presentations and a comprehensive workbook. Free-form classroom
interactions are balanced with structured grammar and vocabulary drills. By the end of this seven-week immersion program, students will
be able to easily navigate a variety of real-world situations.
