French 2

Prerequisites: Middle School French 1, or equivalent

Course Length: Each semester course is 90 lessons. Each lesson is about 30-45 minutes.

Course Description: The solid basis acquired in Middle School French 1 is expanded in this course with instruction equivalent to that found in the second semester of high school French I. Children continue their introduction to French with fundamental building blocks in four key areas of world-language study: listening comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing. Children are initially trained to recognize key sounds and basic vocabulary, not only in written form but also through ear training that leads quickly to oral production. An ongoing adventure story introduces vocabulary and grammar topics, and prompts children to use skills from the four language-learning areas. They learn fundamental grammar as embedded in authentic spoken language.
