French 2 is designed for students who have successfully completed their first year of French.  It is a two-semester course which aims to improve the student’s ability to speak, read, and write in French, to systematically review grammar previously studied, to master new concepts in French, and to enhance the student’s knowledge of the cultural diversity of the French-speaking world.  The emphasis on improvement of oral skills will be considerable, and the student will be encouraged to speak in French on a variety of topics and in a number of situations ranging from question and answer to oral presentations and/or situations.  A final grade of C+ (in June) is required to go on to French 3.
