Elementary French, second semester (Summer Session C -- 8 weeks)
Chez nous: Branché sur le monde francophone, 4th Edition; Student Activities Manual, 4th Edition; Answer Key, SAM, 4th Edition.
This is a second-semester course on French language and culture. It assumes prior engagement with the language: either French 1 at UC Berkeley or three years of high school French with the consent of the instructor. In this class, you’ll develop your ability to interact in a French-speaking environment; to read and understand a variety of texts, from menus to poems; and to converse on topics of increasing complexity. We’ll develop these skills through a sustained engagement with various aspects of Francophone cultures from around the world: art, music, film, and of course, food! We’ll learn to think about these cultures with a critical and historical perspective. This class is conducted strictly and entirely in French.
French 1 at UC Berkeley or 1 semester (or 2 quarters) of college-level French at another university or 3 years of high school French or consent of the instructor.
