French 08, version 03 (Print)

It is strongly recommended that students have some previous courses in French, Students with no previous exposure to French should take Introductory French 8 prior to enrolling in French 8.

This course is based on the British Columbia prescribed curriculum for Core French 8 and embraces the communicative-experiential approach described therein. It emphasizes the practical use of language in all its forms and de-emphasizes the analytical study of grammatical theory. The course requires students to use French to perform realistic communicative tasks, share ideas, to acquire information and get things done. It also includes experiences with works by Francophone artists and actors.
