If you have studied French basics or have some or long-since-forgotten knowledge of French, this class is for you. In the Beginner II/Intermediate level course, students have studied all basic concepts of pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, present tense verbs. We will review basics concepts and introduce new vocabulary, grammar rules, past tenses, cultural aspects, and expressions through exercises. The goal is to expand your oral and written skills and improve your ability to understand and communicate with French-speaking people. Students will learn how to communicate with simple sentences in applicable everyday situations. The class focuses on reading, listening, and oral exercises for a well-rounded, dynamic learning experience of everyday French. The college-level textbook Contacts, Valette/Valette, 8th Edition, may be purchased online or from a bookstore prior to the first class.
