French Language Objectives
By the time a student completes a fifth through eighth grade sequence of French, that student should be linguistically and culturally equipped to communicate on a variety of topics in a French-speaking part of the world.
Students will study vocabulary, grammar, and conversation while applying these skills in listening, speaking, reading and writing activities. Students are assessed in a variety of manners including tests, quizzes, projects and oral presentations.
French In and Beyond the Classroom
Students learning French study, do homework and practice their language daily. They also have fun!
French students enjoy learning about the cultures of French-speaking countries in Europe, Africa, Asia and North America. French students celebrate Mardi Gras every year and enjoy tasting samples of traditional French foods in a café setting. In the past, junior high French students have had the opportunity to practice their French in Quebec, Canada.
