A continuation of “Beginning French I” and the second in a three-course series, this course is intended for students who can exchange greetings and converse in the present tense about their activities and interests. The course will focus on expanding vocabulary related to family life, housing, leisure activities, professions, and the workplace. Students will improve their oral and writing proficiency through collaborative activities surrounding a variety of audiovisual materials, such as short texts, songs, and video. At the same time, students will progress in their comprehension of oral and written texts as they draw cultural comparisons through the presentation of materials on French and francophone society, politics, art, and literature. Students will also have the opportunity to give a short oral presentation. By the end of the quarter, they will be able to ask and answer questions, negotiate simple service transactions such as renting an apartment, and ask for and give directions.

This is the second course in a three-course sequence. Students may enroll in this course without intending to take Level III.
