In French III, students will continue developing their language skills in order to begin discussing more abstract concepts in French. Through authentic readings, listenings and other explorations of Francophone culture, students further their understanding of La Francophonie. Students will be expected to perform regularly in simulated daily life scenarios while simultaneously refining their written and grammatical understanding of French. The course also involves students researching and presenting on cultural topics of their choice throughout the year. At the end of their third year, students should feel comfortable maintaining a conversation and carry out increasingly complex tasks in a French-speaking country. They should also understand grammatical features of the language, including the ability to speak confidently about past, present, future, and subjunctive events.
