French: Intermediate II

This course focuses on transitioning from acquisition to application of language through the study of culture and literature. The course begins with a rapid review of key contexts and structures from Novice French.  Students extend their ability to use language skills in analytical and creative ways and also develop writing skills through short essays and weekly journal entries.  Students study a selection of poems by Jacques Prévert and short stories by other French authors.

Intermediate-mid French consists of 6 possible mods.  Students will be placed into the appropriate mod based on performance on a placement test or performance in a previous George School French course.  Students will continue taking mods at the Intermediate-high level until they reach the necessary proficiency for Intermediate-high French, SL French, HL French, or Current Events.

Min-Max Credit Hours: 1.0-4.0
