French Beginners Stage 2 (Dominique Partridge)

Course Outline:

For class with Dominique Partridge

This course is designed for students with prior knowledge of the French language at beginner level or at the A1.2 level on the CEFR scale. The goal of the course is to strengthen listening comprehension, speaking, writing and reading skills, as well as phonetics, all in a social and interactive environment. This course is recommended for those who are familiar with verb conjugations in the present, past perfect, future and imperative tenses. We will begin term 1 at page 76 of the Cosmopolite 1 textbook, (Dossier 4, leçon 2). Homework will be an essential element for the success of the course.
