The focus of French II will be to finish this textbook and for the students to be ready to go on to French 3.  The Level II language course focuses on the continued development of communicative competency in the target language and understanding of the culture(s) of the people who speak the language.  Attention will be given to a brief history of France, notable people from France and some current events.

Students begin to show a greater level of accuracy when using basic language structures and they are exposed to more complex features of the language.  They continue to focus on communicating about their immediate world and daily life activities, read material on familiar topics and write short, directed compositions.  By second semester, communication between students and teacher will be in the target language.
