Level 2 Early Intermediate French

Level 2 is an integrated, intensive program for students who have received little previous instruction in (or exposure to) French, but who have reached only minimal proficiency and are not yet able to function independently in full immersion. Level Two focuses on the following:

• developing listening comprehension, oral competence, and socio-cultural communicative proficiency.
• systematic acquisition of strategies for oral and written expression through progressive practice, with topical review of basic morphological and syntactic structures.
• an overview of various cultural aspects of French-speaking communities worldwide, through readings and recordings.

Students in Level 2 take four classes a day, awarding a total of three units of credit.  The courses are: Grammatical Structures, Oral Production and Applied Phonetics, Written Comprehension and Expression, Introduction to Francophone Cultures and Literatures.
