Students will learn to develop and apply their critical thinking skills during discussion, analysis, and interpretation of various genres. Through the study and use of more complex language conventions, students will become more proficient in French. This course integrates oral communication, reading and writing skills and emphasizes collaborative activities. International trips to France and other French-speaking countries occur every few years through the French department.
