Foreign Language

Proficiency in more than one language is a valuable asset in today's global society. In learning another language students expand their understanding of other people and their culture. It broadens their horizons and opens new fields of interest. In the department we hope to give them not only the basics of Spanish and French, but an appreciation of the beauty of the cultures that accompanies them.

Courses

French I- This course introduces students to the French language and its culture; develops listening, speaking, and pronunciation skills, and fosters cross-cultural understanding. Reading and writing are also included.

French II- This course reinforces the fundamental skills previously learned in French 1. The course expands listening and oral skills with more emphasis on reading, writing, and grammar and includes a survey of French-speaking people.

French III- This course expands the skills previously learned in French 2. The course includes vocabulary and conversational activities which include contemporary vocabulary from everyday life activities of French-speaking people. Acquisition of grammatical concepts is strengthened by analyzing reading selections.
