Welcome to French 051. This course consists of an in-depth revision of the grammar youlearned in French I and II and is taught in French. You will improve on textcomprehension and oral and written expression through short stories/excerpts, and videosthat focus on francophone culture. We will cover five chapters of the textbook. Inaddition to the chapters we will cover in the text, we will read one short story. The onlynew grammar concept you will learn is the plus-que-parfait tense. You will be introducedto the passé simple tense for the reading of Giono. Essentially, we will be reviewinggrammar and focusing on vocabulary, but most importantly you will be applying thelanguage through conversation and written expression. The course will be interesting andfun as we delve into francophone cultures around the world, sharing and comparing ourknowledge, experiences, perceptions, ideas, and opinions.
