French III

Full-year course. This course builds on the foundation established in French II. Over the course of the academic year, students will learn how to talk about goals, discuss health and wellbeing, give your opinions in a debate, talk about cause and effect, and use imperfect and conditional tenses as well as the passive voice.  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 III 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.
