Full-year course. This course builds on the foundation established in French I. Over the course of the academic year, students will learn how to give their opinions, use the imperfect and present perfect, use and discuss common media, retell a story, and talk about the future, formulating both hypotheses and possibilities. Students will use skills in the following areas and build global competency skills for future careers and experience based on the World-readiness Standards for Learning Languages from the ACTFL: Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities.

We recommend that students enrolling in French II be comfortable with the topics covered in Grammar II. Grammar instruction is not a pre- or co-requisite, however we have found that students are more successful learning a new language when they have a strong understanding of grammar rules. Use the placement tests found in our grammar course descriptions to find the appropriate grammar course for your student.
Prerequisite: French I; French II Placement Test
