This course is a continuation of the beginning level courses and is designed to help the student continue learning the French language. In this course, students practice listening, speaking, reading and writing skills through activities based on pedagogically proven methods of foreign language instruction. The course is aligned to the national Foreign Language standards.

In the first semester, students study daily routine, activities, camping & nature, parts of the body and health. In the second semester, the topics are movies, books and television, vacations, back to school and professions. Through these topics students learn to express themselves using an ever-increasing vocabulary and the present, past, future and conditional-tense verbs, as well as articles and adjectives.
