Intermediate French is for students who have studied all basic concepts of pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary. The course quickly reviews the foundation to build upon and expand the language patterns and grammatical structures. Vocabulary is enhanced further through simple dialogues and conversation, readings, writings, exercises and translations. Verbs tenses are reviewed and more are presented. Students learn how to communicate with simple sentences in applicable situations. Spontaneous exercises are used to reinforce knowledge and detect areas for review. The college-level Contacts, Valette/Valette, 8th Edition, and the corresponding Student Activities Manual, 8th Edition, may be purchased online or from a bookstore.
