This course is intended for students who can already converse in French on topics such as family life, housing, leisure activities, professions, and the workplace. Students will continue to improve their oral and written proficiency through exposure to podcasts, short films, news reports, and literary texts. Students will progress in their comprehension of oral and written texts as they further explore and make cultural comparisons across a variety of topics such as social media, recent political and economic issues, and francophone music and art. Students will also have the opportunity to give several oral group presentations on related topics. By the end of the quarter, students will begin to narrate in the past and describe future plans. Students will also navigate service transactions such as ordering a meal, making reservations using a telephone, or using a website in French.
