This course builds on the skills acquired in French 1.  Everyday topics are still the focus of the class, but the students’ vocabulary is expanded and their grammar refined so that they are able to express their opinions and describe their experiences in a more precise manner.  Students are exposed to video scenes taken from daily life events, recorded conversations, and different forms of interactive activities.  The course proceeds at a moderate pace and requires review of class work and homework assignments.  By the end of this course students are able to function in a variety of contexts including discussions related to hobbies, school, travel in France, dining out, past experiences, and future plans.  Assessments are based on a variety of activities including short compositions, oral presentations and skits, which demonstrate the students’ written and oral progress in the language. Students in level French 2A wishing to move to French 3A must have a “C” and a teacher recommendation. Students wishing to move on to French 3H must have an “A” in the course, a teacher recommendation, and must complete a summer assignment to move up to the Honors level.
