Continuing Studies

Summary

Polish your skills as you discuss the culture and history of France and the Francophone world. Refine your knowledge of tense, lexicon, and register while improving your reading, writing, communicating, and listening abilities. 

Prerequisite: French 3.

Course format

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. For the first sessions, you will meet with your instructor in small groups of 3–6 students for 30-minutes, then move to one-hour sessions with 6–12 students.  Groups will vary weekly, so participants should be available the entire one-hour time slot. Online course materials available one week before first live conversation class and remain accessible for one month after the course ends.
