* Description

French 2 with live Audio (Skype) and Chat classes: The second-year program adds to the students’ ability to express complex ideas and reasoning. It is hoped that they will reach a A2 level according to the Council of Europe scale. At this level, students should understand the main points of clear conversations and should be able to manage most situations while traveling. In addition, they should be able to speak simply about their personal interests as well as events, plans, and dreams. All four areas of expression, reading, writing, listening, and speaking are practiced.

The material is presented through a textbook which uses real French documents and media. Ample audio and visual material is provided on the integrated multimedia Supersite. Students do exercises in an online workbook which allows the teacher to give immediate feedback. The most important part of the class, however, is the two weekly hours of online class time, where students put what they are learning into practice and gain confidence in their communication skills. We use the program Skype for the audio component of our class.
