Prerequisite : “French 2” or instructor approval
The goals of this intermediate/advanced course are: 1) to emphasize conversation and culture and 2) to solidify our knowledge of the grammatical structures of French. In each class we view an episode of one of two free French video programs available online. One program’s goal is to familiarize students with intermediate level language and French culture. It comes with transcriptions and podcasts. The other program features a vivacious young French woman who illustrates French expressions (and gestures) dealing with everyday topics. We practice what they teach. We’ll also review and practice intermediate and advanced grammatical structures with the help of a good grammar review textbook.
