This fourth year of French is a continuation of the first three years. The student will continue to sharpen listening, speaking, reading and writing skills through activities that are based on pedagogically proven methods of foreign language instruction. Throughout the course, students learn to express themselves using an ever increasing vocabulary, present-tense verbs, past-tense verbs, articles, and adjectives. Grammar is introduced and practiced in innovative and interesting ways with a variety of learning styles in mind. Culture is interspersed throughout the course in an attempt to help the learner focus on the French speaking world and their culture, people, geographical locations and histories.
Instructional activities will center on perfecting the four skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing in the host nation/ target language will be emphasized. Proficiency will be required in all four skills. Students will synthesize elements of sound-, syntax-, and vocabulary building in taking complex dictation and in manipulating and refining phonological skills, Writing short compositions and demonstrating creative writing skills using correct syntax will be fundamental. Activities for cultural awareness will constantly be encouraged.
Students will be required to pass tests included with the program text. Teacher-made tests will also be utilized. Dictations will be used frequently. Translations will be encouraged.
