This course is designed as a continuation of the French 1 introduction to French language and Francophone cultures. Through completing the coursework, students will acquire the target language. Students will gain a basic understanding of French grammar, vocabulary, syntax, and phonetics through the study of authentic cultural practices and products. There will be a focus on the 5 Cs for Foreign Language Learning (Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities). We will focus on the four domains of speaking, reading, and writing to build a strong communicative foundation required for continued study and enjoyment of the language.
