I am delighted to offer French 3! The curriculum reviews and BUILDS on the grammar and vocabulary previously taught in French 1 and 2. As students have learned -- there are many exceptions to the rules and many irregular verbs in the French language. Students will study compound verb tenses and the subjunctive and passive moods as well as French history, geography, daily life, fine arts, and industry.  The mastery of the subjunctive tenses will allow them a new level of expression and confidence in the use of the language.

This year will also see the students writing original work; essays, dialogues, and summaries of geography & biographies.

I am looking forward immensely to welcome back the students who have also developed a love for the French language!  It will be a wonderful year of learning ing much greater depth.
