The objective of this course is to expand vocabulary skills through exposure of the diversity of the French language. This is done with the support of literary, political, social and cultural articles from the French speaking world. At this level grammatical and sentence structures are interesting and complex. At the end of this course the student will have discussed and researched current affairs of French speaking Canada, given an opinion, given advice; expressed regret to hypothetical actions in the past, as well as applied verb tenses that establish sequential order to past actions.
Students will be required to submit an oral/visual presentation using either a DVD/CD.
A headset or microphone and speakers are required for the oral parts of this course. Students will submit recordings using software such as Jing, YouTube or Windows Media Player. Audio clips are provided in .wma format which is Windows compatible. MAC users will need to convert the files to an appropriate format.
