At this level, you’ll work to reinforce oral and written communication skills while also working your way up to communicating personal interests. You’ll also learn to express ideas, aspirations, and opinions. At the end of this level, you’ll be able to handle traveling or living in Francophone countries as well as understand the main points of conversations with native French-speakers.

With engaging multimedia activities, texts, and course books, you will learn to ask for written advice, characterize places, express wishes and purposes, negotiate, and more. Culturally, you will focus on moving to a new place, daily life in a Francophone country and day to day problems. At the end of this class, you will be able to situate conversations more complexly into space and time as well as use deeper and more enriched vocabulary.
