Students will learn basic conversation for inside a post office, in a pharmacy, and at a French dinner table. Several French-speaking regions will also be highlighted. This course features interactive elements: live instructor-led orientations and weekly lesson review activities, live one-on-one speaking appointments, a student discussion board, and an instructor-hosted wiki. There is specific emphasis on speaking and comprehension, as well as reading and writing. This is the second course in a four-part French series (FREN 041, FREN 043, FREN 051, and FREN 053) and is a continuation of First-Year French, Part 1 (FREN 041).
Students will need access to a computer with high speed Internet access, a microphone, speakers (or headphones), and a webcam. There are no resubmissions or retakes on instructor-graded assignments, unit quizzes or the final exam. On speaking appointments, lowest score may be dropped. You must complete the speaking appointment in each unit before you can move on to the next unit.
