This is the second level of our five-level French Language Diploma Program, focusing on all four basic language skills (listening, speaking, reading, writing).
Classes meet twice weekly for two hours, for two 13-week semesters. Entrance at midpoint in January is possible if your initial level is sufficient. Small classes (maximum 18) enhance individual participation. Classes feature a balance of structural and communicative activities and an important cultural content to optimize learning.
This course will focus on all the structures, vocabulary and pronunciation necessary to perform tasks such as:
speak about your interests
use idiomatic expressions with the verb “faire” and “avoir”
use idiomatic impersonal constructions such as “il faut” use “pouvoir” and “vouloir” in a variety of contexts and meanings
