Course Overview

This is the second part of a two-semester course sequence. This course builds on the basic communicative skills developed in French 111. It combines an intensive study of the principles of grammar and usage of the language, vocabulary building, reading, composition, and translation at the novice-mid/novice-high level. A contrastive grammar approach will be incorporated, drawing upon elements of English and ASL and LSF, as appropriate. Students will also be exposed to aspects of the target culture(s), including information on Deaf communities abroad. When offered face to face, the course has four hours of classroom instruction plus an additional, required weekly hour in the department’s Learning Laboratory. When offered on-line or as hybrid, the lab hour is part of the on-line component.
