Introduction to French 2 (FR2v)
2 (yearlong course)
Introduction to French 1 (FR1v)
Students continue their language-learning adventure by progressing to this next level of middle school French. The instruction is equivalent to that found in the second semester of High School French I. Students expand their introduction to French through focus on four key areas of foreign language study: listening, speaking, reading and writing. The course represents an ideal blend of language learning pedagogy and online learning. Each unit consists of a new vocabulary theme and grammar concept, reading and listening comprehension activities, speaking and writing activities, multimedia cultural presentations, and interactive activities and practices, which reinforce vocabulary and grammar. There is a strong emphasis on providing context and conversational examples for the language concepts presented in each unit. Students should expect to be actively engaged in their own language learning, become familiar with common vocabulary terms and phrases, comprehend a wide range of grammar patterns, participate in simple conversations and respond appropriately to basic conversational prompts, analyze and compare cultural practices, products, and perspectives of various French- speaking countries, and take frequent assessments where their language progression can be monitored. The course has been carefully aligned to national standards as set forth by ACTFL (the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages). (Grades 7-8).
A stable Internet connection is needed for this class since all work is done online. A minimum connection speed of 5Mbps is required. iPads are not compatible with this course.
This course can be applied towards .5 of high school credit.
So, you’ve finished your first year of middle school French, and now you’re ready to communicate even further with French speakers that you meet around the world or at home. Let’s see what you’ll be learning in your second year! By the end of Middle School French 2, you’ll be able to have simple conversations about where you live, what you do every day, what you’re wearing, your health, and what you want to do for a career. You’ll be ready to travel to a French-speaking country with your new vocabulary about vacations and travel, too. After finishing this course, you’ll be able to go straight into High School French 200.
