This course will bring together the grammar theory and skills previously acquired into a useful and practical framework which will form a foundation for further university-level study in French. Contact hours (in class and in the lab) will be spent applying theory and further developing the four language skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking through group tasks and activities.
This course follows the European Common Framework for Language Learning. A student successfully completing this course will be at the A2 (Waystage or Elementary) Level and will
