This course provides an opportunity for French language learners and lovers to practice and perfect French language skills with fellow students and native speakers. Emphasis is on speaking and listening; there are also chances for reading and writing. Students collaborate in selecting topics for discussion and class activities which reflect their interests, from reciting poems to watching films, reading francophone works, discussing current events, working puzzles, telling jokes, explaining cartoons, listening to music, making music, and sharing travel stories. Students work independently, in pairs, in groups, face to face, online, at school, in class, and elsewhere. Previous knowledge of French is recommended.
