French II (Standard)
A continuation of the work of French I. Students work toward a proficiency in French which allows them to: ask and answer questions in areas of immediate need and on very familiar topics; pronounce the language well enough to be understood; read and understand information in a simple paragraph; and to write a short paragraph on a familiar topic. Listening and speaking remain the principal focus, but reading and writing gain greater emphasis. Students begin to incorporate their cultural awareness into their language study and learn to deal with some everyday situations in a manner appropriate to the culture.
Prerequisite: One year of high school French
