French III continues with the text D’ accord 3. Tableaux Culturels de la France provides students with longer texts and stories with comprehension and composition questions to help them gain mastery of the syntax of French and increase their vocabulary as well as their knowledge of French history and culture. The emphasis of the third year course is on building vocabulary, increasing knowledge of more advanced idiomatic expressions, and continuing to expand the student’s understanding of French grammar. Proficiency in speaking and writing are the key goals. Listening comprehension is emphasized through the use of audio recordings, videos, dictations, on-line activities, and exposure to the spoken word in a variety of contexts. The cultural component will continue to expand the student’s knowledge of France and will include a study of the French speaking world.
