In French I, the student begins to understand, speak, read and write French. Conversational skills using the present tense and practical vocabulary are emphasized. Students also begin to study the culture of French-speaking peoples.

French II builds on the first-level course. Students increase their vocabulary, are introduced to the past tense, and improve conversational, reading, and writing skills. Students continue to study the culture of French-speaking peoples.

In French III, students continue to develop skills in speaking, listening and writing French. At this level there is increased emphasis on vocabulary development, oral proficiency, expression in past and various other tenses. Students continue to expand knowledge of the culture of language-speaking people.

In French IV, students concentrate on more proficient communication in French. Students and teachers communicate more in French in order to refine the skills of speaking, auditory and reading comprehension, and composition. Students apply previously learned verb tenses and are introduced to the remaining tenses and moods in the verb system.
