Build your confidence as you improve your ability to converse in the present tense and become familiar with past tenses. French 2 covers activities, professions, descriptions and the past tense. Textbook and workbook required. The Alter Ego 1 textbook and workbook is used for French 1 & 2.
Prerequisite: French 1.
Instructional videos and interactive online materials in the Canvas course platform introduce new grammar and vocabulary and teach pronunciation, listening and reading skills. Participants should budget 3–4 hours a week to work through the online asynchronous materials in preparation for the live online conversation groups. Participants practice speaking live with the instructor in small groups of 3–6 students in 30–minute weekly sessions. Groups will vary weekly, so participants should be available for the entire one-hour time slot. Online course materials are available one week before the first live conversation class and remain accessible for one month after the course ends.
