The third year of French continues to foster students’ development in reading, writing, listening, and speaking the language. Throughout the year, students revisit important grammar and vocabulary from years 1-2 while also learning new concepts. Students apply their growing command of the language through games, daily partner and group conversational activities, personal and collaborative writing exercises, and engagement with authentic print, audio, and video sources. All the while, they develop their own projects that demonstrate their skill with the French language and their passion for the francophone world. Students read a sequence of several longer texts throughout the year. Students in the honors section read a more challenging slate of texts and engage in more rigorous cultural and grammatical study.
