High School French 3

his course expands upon the French language skills begun in French 2. Students will broaden their communicative skills and deepen their understanding of written and spoken French. In addition to reviewing the present and past tenses studied in French 1 and 2, French 3 will focus on the conditional, future, and subjunctive, along with complex grammatical structures and new vocabulary. Students will continue to learn about the culture and history of the Francophone world, memorize French poetry, and read full length texts.

Alongside approximately 30 hours of live instruction, students will develop their French skills through interactive dialogues, role-play, grammar exercises, creating writing, and reading from a wide range of Francophone sources.

Students are encouraged to take the National French Exam and are provided with practice questions and support to prepare for the exam.

French III uses a textbook called D’accord! Langue et Culture du Monde Francophone. This text does an excellent job presenting grammar and vocabulary within the context of conversation, literature, and the diverse cultures of the Francophone world. It includes phonetic guides, detailed grammar explanations, engaging cultural readings, and vocabulary sections that focus on practical, contextual communication. Perhaps most importantly for the nature of online courses, the D'Accord series is paired with an online platform. This online space includes an Ebook which allows students to engage with the text, view videos and practice pronunciation.  In addition D’Accord provides an impressive library of practice resources, from flash cards to supplemental videos to games to homework activities. Homework assignments provide instant correction and feedback, allowing students to target areas needing more attention. 

With D'accord!, French III offers a blended approach to French acquisition, combining live instruction, traditional assignments that are submitted to the instructor and receive individual feedback, and daily online homework that is completed through the D'accord! platform. This software product is currently used widely across America, and comes highly recommended by other teachers at CLRC.

The cost to purchase the Ebook and access to the complete library of online resources for French III is $30.  

Please Note: since the complete resource package must be purchased for each new student, and each new student will have access to the complete package for the entire academic year, students who join CLRC French 3 from another program will need to purchase the Online Resource Access for French 3 ($30), AND for both French 1 ($70) and 2 ($40).  This will also provide valuable resources for review and reinforcement of previous work as needed. The textbook is purchased as an add-on at registration.
