Students in this class will spend time reviewing material learned in previous courses, then advance into new linguistic territory. They will focus on the nuances of how to express themselves using the past tenses passé composé and imparfait. Students will work with a textbook and spend time discussing the French language and culture en français! The teacher encourages each student to speak in French at all times. The focus toward the end of the year is on reading and being able to understand all that they have learned in a more complex context. This class aims to help students master the basics while preparing them for the move to the exciting challenges of French III.
