Fixed-Pace Course


French 3



This course focuses on developing the students’ communication skills. Several themes provide the necessary context: the francophone regions, the geography and history of France, Paris and its neighborhoods, francophone music, art, film, and literature. Students engage in activities meant to explore francophone cultures as well as review, expand, and deepen their knowledge of grammatical concepts and vocabulary. Students are expected to engage thoughtfully with the course materials, the teacher, and the other students.

Completion of this course requires regular access to a laptop or desktop computer with working microphone and webcam, as well as a reliable internet connection.

This Fixed-Paced course incorporates a blend of synchronous and asynchronous elements. Students and teacher meet live via zoom on a regular weekly schedule. In addition, students complete coursework including guided readings, interactive videos, text and video-based discussion threads, problem sets, individual and collaborative projects, and so on. While these activities are time-flexible, teachers sequence them with weekly deadlines to help students keep on track and encourage and support the development of productive time management skills.
