The three goals of this intermediate level course are: a) to emphasize exposure to authentic French culture; b) to increase our knowledge of French vocabulary and grammatical structures and c) to practice conversation. We will rely on videos made in France rather than on a traditional textbook because learning with Zoom has two big advantages for language study: a) it brings the sounds and sights of the new culture into our own environment and b) it allows participant-to-participant conversations in breakout rooms. Therefore, our two-hour Zoom meetings will consist of three parts: a) a video lesson, coming to us from France, integrating vocabulary, grammar and culture; b) practice speaking French in groups of two or three participants in Zoom breakout rooms and c) the occasional discussion of intermediate level texts previously sent by email to all participants.

Textbook (optional): “The Ultimate FRENCH Review and Practice,” any edition, offering detailed explanations, exercises and corrections of the exercises.
