French III

Course Description


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 American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages: Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities.
