This second level of French will continue to engage students with additional and more complex communicative building blocks and cover additional aspects of the contemporary French culture by providing additional grammatical and conversational tools needed to strengthen the foundation learned in level I.



Upon completion of this course, students will learn expanded structures of pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary, to be able to communicate comfortably in French and interact socially with others.

  • Expressing what you are doing and making

Each section will also include pronunciation/accent practice, vocabulary, verb construction and other grammatical structure to help the student build conversational skills.  Exercises will be assigned, as found in the text, to help students practice and correct themselves as they progress.  French culture will also be introduced.
