Description
French 2 goes deeper into the French language by focusing on oral proficiency and more sophisticated grammar. The textbook for French 2 is "D'accord! 2" through Vista Higher Learning. The textbook is combined with the TPRS method of language learning, which emphasizes Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling . TPRS is a multi-sensory methodology, meaning that it meets the needs of various learning styles. Gestures and acting meet the needs of kinesthetic learners; visual images (illustrations, props, puppets, live actors, etc.) satisfy the needs of visual learners; the tremendous amount of listening and reading activities appeal to visual and auditory learners. The textbook is divided into thematic units, which will help focus our language learning and guide students through age-appropriate and highly useful cultural situations. We will also explore various Francophone cultures from around the world and try to determine ways in which we can use our French to positively influence those around us.
