Students continue the development and strengthening of the four communication skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Cultural and literary materials are used to develop an appreciation for the arts, history, culture and literature of French-speaking peoples and to create an awareness of cultural, social, and linguistic differences and similarities. Major grammar focus includes regular and irregular present tense, compound past and imperfect forms. Cultural topics include immigration and changing French identity. The course has an important online component and relies on the use of short films to introduce cultural and grammatical topics.
