French III introduces students to more complex vocabulary (including a variety of idiomatic expressions) and grammatical structures necessary for more sophisticated language application. This course focuses on the training and cultivating of independent language users who are able to function within spontaneous language exchanges. French III follows the two introductory and mandatory courses and is designated and designed for those students who wish to continue their studies of French in preparation for university level instruction. The goal of French III is to produce the necessary bridge between the communication skills based more heavily on imitation and limited variation of learned response (French I & II) and more sophisticated and spontaneous use of the target language essential for further, higher level development. Students will continue to build their vocabulary in French as they are exposed to complex structures such as the use of conditional and subjunctive moods, a variety of tenses, and their coexistence in a sentence. Students will continue to learn about various aspects of the French and Francophone culture.
