This course will help students improve proficiency in French by increasing their ability to introduce themselves, ask for and give directions, describe technology, and talk about a variety of other topics. This course features interactive elements: live one-on-one speaking appointments, a student discussion board, and an instructor-hosted wiki. There is a strong emphasis on learning to speak the language, as well as read and write it. Additionally, there is an emphasis on gaining cultural understanding.
Students will need access to a computer with high-speed Internet, a microphone, speakers (or headphones), a webcam. Access to a cell phone is recommended for some assignments, but alternative forms of submission are available. You will be required to complete all activities before each review section of the course (there are two) and before you can request your final written exam. There are no resubmissions on mini assessments, Conversation Café activities or unit quizzes. There are retakes on the final speaking appointment and the final exam.
