French III begins with review and expansion of the most important concepts from French II. There is an emphasis on vocabulary development and oral and written self-expression. The class will be conducted entirely in French, as students focus on improving their listening comprehension and developing the ability to express themselves fluidly in French. Activities are regularly drawn from French-language movies, YouTube videos, songs, and newspapers. By the end of the class, students will be comfortable in a French-only classroom environment and have the skills necessary to succeed in Advanced French. Students taking this course commit to speaking French during class.
Prerequisite: Successful completion of French II with a grade of B or better or permission of the instructor.
