In addition, you will need a full size hardbound French-English dictionary.

In this course you will complete second year French, a language that is the vehicle of communication of one of the world's great cultures. You will learn to communicate in basic French and to read French texts. Even if French is not your major this course can be of great benefit to you. You may use it in your business, in your personal relations, or as a research tool in graduate school. After all, a study of French entails not only knowledge of the language, but an awareness of the history, culture and literature of France and the Francophone world. Because this is an intensive class, your participation and attendance is crucial to your success. Most of the work will be completed alongside your professors so your success is virtually assured! Come to class ON TIME every day, be ready to participate and you will master more French than you ever dreamed possible in such a short time.

Policies

1. Make ups: No make-ups for an unexcused absence are given. In case of excused absences, your professor may choose not to give a make-up; instead he may choose to count that quiz or examination as one of the grades to be dropped.

2. You are expected to come to class prepared every day. Study the material specified on the syllabus or in class! There WILL be quizzes every day and there WILL be writing assignments!

3. Every quiz and examination will stress oral comprehension. Keep in mind that all class work will be conducted orally in French and your attendance and participation will have a definite impact on your grade. The activities of listening to a language, speaking a language, and writing a language all demand active skills. This class will require your active participation. Remember, because this class has substantial inclass activities, there will be little homework. This makes your attendance even more important to your success.

A language course is different from other courses at the college because you work on oral communication skills. The only place you can work on these skills is in your French class. Other classes may not require your attendance because you can learn the material from the book; however, there is no substitute for the dynamic interaction that takes place between you and your teacher--a trained language acquisition specialist. Students who arrive late for any of the classes will have points deducted from their daily grades.

4. Your grade in this class will be given as follows: N.B. you will receive grades for each part of this course. In order to continue in French 202, you must receive a passing grade in French 201.

The use of cell phones or any electronic media device is not allowed during this class. Use of such devices during a quiz or exam will constitute an honor code violation and will be reported to the honor court.
